Mobile Meals

ICS Mobile Meals volunteers deliver fresh nutritious meals each weekday to elderly, disabled or convalescing adults who are unable to cook for themselves.

Do you or someone you know need fresh, nutritious meals?

Call 520-297-6049 or email jlane@icstucson.org for more information on the program and to register for services.

This program aims to help participants:

  • Live safely and independently in their own homes
  • Accommodate special diets
  • Maintain or restore health

ICS Mobile Meals offers flexible plans to meet our participants’ needs. They can opt to receive one or two meals per day (one hot and one cold), up to five days a week. Meals are delivered mid-day by friendly, caring volunteers.

ICS Mobile Meals are available in the northwest part of metropolitan Tucson.

Our partner kitchens prepare the meals, and can accommodate doctor-prescribed diets such as low salt, diabetic, and gluten-free. The meals are very important in maintaining our participants’ health, but it is “more than food.” Daily contact with ICS volunteers helps our participants avoid loneliness and isolation. Our trained volunteers are also able to observe the overall well-being of our participants and alert the ICS staff if there are issues that need to be addressed.

The cost of the meals is determined by ability to pay. ICS provides a sliding scale fee based on recipients’ income; the maximum per-day fee is $8.
