As a recipient of home-delivered meals, you will receive home delivery of meals (weather permitting) from your local center on the days that your center is routinely open, unless you have requested more limited service. (Exception- meals dispatched by a center that does not have a meals delivery mechanism in operation on each day that the center is routinely open. Such circumstances are noted below.)

Consumer-Arranged Delivery of Meals
AAA adheres to an established route system for the delivery of Home-Delivered Meals. In cases where a family/volunteer is willing to self pick-up meals, the AAA will not assume the responsibility of the delivery of meals (outside the AAA established route) if for some reason the family/volunteer can no longer pick them up.
 
Delivery Times
Home-Delivered meals are provided to cover the mid-day meal. In more heavily populated areas, the delivery times of the meals may vary, sometimes as much as 1/2 hour, particularly during bad weather. If 1/2 hour has passed beyond your normal meal delivery time, you may call your local center manager to determine if a problem exists.
 
Unless there is verbal or visual contact with consumer, the meal will not be left unattended.
 
Meal Cancellations by Consumers
Consumers who wish to cancel meals for only 1 or 2 days, should contact the center manager of their local center or the Center Service Department of the AAA by noon on the day preceding the day(s) of cancellation.
 
Service cancellations of longer duration (3 or more days) should be arranged by calling your AAA care manager at 1-800-368-1066.
 
Inclement Weather
On occasion when the weather causes hazardous driving conditions, we may not be able to arrange for your meals to be delivered.
 
When our Centers are closed we are unable to provide home-delivered meals. Listen to the following radio stations for announcements concerning Center closings:
WAVL-Apollo 910 AM
WTYM-Kittanning 1380 AM
 
The Agency on Aging does provide "shelf meals" to be retained by home-delivered meal consumers for use during occurances when meal delivery isn't possible. A shelf meal is a meal packaged for ordinary shelf storage and can be prepared with minimal effort for consumption when inclement weather prohibits delivery.
 
Regardless it is suggested that meal recipients maintain at least a five-day supply of easily-prepared foods that have an extended shelf life, so as to be certain of adequate food in case of emergency weather conditions.
 
Donations
The actual cost to the Agency for each meal is $3.03 plus delivery costs where applicable. Although there is no charge to consumers for the meals, there is a suggested voluntary contribution of $1.00 per meal. Self-addressed and contribution envelopes are provided monthly.
 
Diets
A registered dietician plans all menus to assure balanced nutrition. For diabetic consumers the agency can, upon consumer request, substitute fruits in place of desserts.
 
Re-Evaluation of Continued Eligibility
The Agency's casework staff will contact you at least every six months (if you are receiving on-going service) to arrange to visit your home for re-evaluation of your eligibility for the home-delivered meals. Continued eligibility is based on consumer being homebound, unable to prepare meals, having no assistance with meals or any other source of getting meals. If your condition improves, you must report this to your care manager, who will re-evaluate your need/eligibility for service.
 
Guidelines for Meal Deliveries
  • Delivery person must have verbal or visual contact with consumer for every meal delivery
  • Delivery person cannot leave meal unattended (such as on a table, porch or hallway)
  • Delivery person is not permitted to accept donations or collect contribution envelopes
