Halal Meals on Wheels

Halal Meals on Wheels 

A comprehensive Social Outreach and Support Program

 

Was launched in 2019 to reach out to our older diverse community's members especially the isolated, underserved, and often chronically disabled. The program started with 45 clients and now serves more than 600 older members and their families throughout the county. AMSS outreach has focused on zip codes with high concentrations of communities of color with health disparities.

 

The program is conducted by teams of AMSS Multicultural Health and Long-Term Care Outreach Ambassadors who provide friendly phone calls, home visits, and the delivery of bi-weekly hot halal meals. In addition and to ensure proper nutrition for our seniors and their families, we are delivering along with the hot meals non-perishable food, and fresh produce.

 

More over, AMSS distributes gift cards and food baskets during the Holy month of Ramadan and special holiday events. AMSS Ambassadors regularly evaluate their client’s needs and connect them with county and community resources.
