Welcome Home Program
The Welcome Home Program was created to help people being discharged from the hospital who are coming home to an empty refrigerator, and can't stay on their feet long enough to cook a nourishing meal. We provide individuals who are low income and live alone with a care package of nutritious, tasty meals within 72 hours of their release from the hospital.
Our goal in doing this is to prevent future admission to hospital and assisted living facilities so that healing and health can occur at home.
Currently our funding allows us to provide Welcome Home meals to people living in King County.
What are the benefits I'll receive?
- Home Delivery of 7 Medically Specific Meals: Wholesome, homemade meals are prepared in our own kitchen, and frozen for convenient reheating at a later time. Most meals meet the nutritional guidelines of the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association. Specialized meals meeting diets such as vegetarian, no gluten/no dairy or easy digestion are available. Any of our menu options can be made suitable for people with chewing and swallowing difficulties.
