LSS Meals, a service of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota (LSS), provides three meal options to the Central Minnesota region through its partnership with Hilltop Regional Kitchen. Nutritious, freshly made meals can be delivered directly to your home or you can enjoy meals served at the Hilltop Regional Kitchen shared in a community setting.
Meals are planned by a licensed, registered dietitian and are available for individuals with special dietary needs, such as those who are diabetic, vegetarian, or require low salt meals.
LSS Meals on Wheels
As a member of Meals on Wheels America, LSS Meals on Wheels delivers hot, nutritious meals paired with a friendly visit and safety check for Minnesotans aged 60+ for a suggested donation of $4-8 per meal. Meal delivery from Hilltop Regional Kitchen is available to residents living in Long Prairie, Browerville, Clarissa, Eagle Bend, Bertha, Hewitt, Wadena, Verndale, and Staples. Some individuals may be eligible for reduced meal costs, please call 1-800-488-4146 to determine eligibility.
Designed for adults who have difficulty leaving their homes, these meals are typically delivered daily by volunteers Monday through Friday, though bundled frozen meal delivery or pick-up are also available on request. Meals are available both on a long-term basis and temporarily if you are recovering from surgery or illness. No one is denied service because of an inability to pay.
