Overview

The Meals on Wheels program is a public-private partnership that promotes health and improves quality of life for senior citizens. For those Bayonne seniors who cannot travel to our nutrition sites and who do not have the assistance of an agency or individual to prepare their meals, this program delivers a nutritious, hot lunch every weekday. Staff members and volunteers also provide companionship, as many program participants live alone. They also conduct a safety check during the visit to ensure the resident’s well-being.
The BEOF Meals on Wheels program currently provides meals to nearly 200 homebound seniors daily in Bayonne.

Eligibility
This program is available to homebound residents of Bayonne, N.J., age 60 and older.

Visit our office at 555 Kennedy Boulevard (between 21st and 22nd Streets) in Bayonne, N.J. Friendly staff members are available to help you complete the applications. You can also call 201-437-7222 for more information.
Our offices open at 8:30 a.m., Monday through Friday, and close at 4:00 p.m. every day except Friday, when we close at 3:30 p.m.
