Funding Meal Assistance

At Ahlers Meals, we deliver nutritious food directly to the homes of elderly and disable individuals, taking the stress out of grocery shopping, meal prep, and other tasks. If you or your loved one could benefit from meal deliveries, our caring team of professionals can help. Several of our clients receive monetary support through government or health plan programs. Taking advantage of your status can help make receiving routing meal deliveries easier. If you meet any of the following criteria, you may be eligible for support:

  • You’re over the age of 65.
  • You’re disabled.
  • You require assistance grocery shopping.
  • You frequently need help preparing meals at home.
  • You’re a Medicare member.
  • You’re a Medicaid member.
  • Your health insurance plan includes a paid meal benefit.

There are many organizations that can help you receive the funding you need to pay for Ahlers Meals. Some of these organizations include:

  • Ohio Home Care Waiver (OHCW)
  • Catholic Social Services (CSS)
  • Area Agency on Aging

If you or your loved one is elderly or disabled and does not qualify for funding through a government program or insurance plan, you still may qualify to receive meal deliveries from our dedicated team. We offer a convenient private pay delivery option that extends our services beyond government and healthcare programs. Once you’re signed up for our meal delivery program, the ordering process is simple.

Receive Food from Trusted Brands

Our delicious meals are client-focused and come from the same trusted name brands found in your local grocery store. We provide over 200 menu options for our valued clients, including several that meet specific needs. From vegetarian meals to low-sodium snacks, our clients have the benefit of selecting the menu options that suit their preferences as well as essential dietary requirements. Our Consumer Intake Specialist can help you decide which meals you want for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. These meals will then be delivered to your door in a thermal cooler bag for freshness.

For clients with cats and dogs, we also offer a free pet food program. We understand how difficult it can be to provide for yourself and your furry companions. Through the Ahlers Angels pet meal program, we’re able to provide cat and dog food for clients currently enrolled in our meal assistance program. Your pet’s meal deliveries coincide with yours to streamline the scheduling process.
