New Opportunities mission is to improve the quality of life for economically disadvantaged individuals by providing the necessary resources to increase their standard of living, foster self-improvement, and maximize self-empowerment.
Meals On Wheels home-delivers two meals a day up to seven days a week to seniors, age 60 and above, who live within the Greater Waterbury areas. Those under 60 years of age with special conditions may also qualify. Menus for the meals are specially formulated by a registered dietitian. Available diet options include regular diet, chopped & ground, low sodium / low cholesterol, diabetic, low residue, low lactose and renal diets. With daily delivery, recipients get one hot meal as well as a light supper or snack. Meals On Wheels also provides a day’s food for an emergency such as bad weather when delivery might be impossible. This consists of a frozen meal and a shelf-stable meal. In addition to our Meals on Wheels service NOI also has an initiative titled ‘Animeals’. Through Animeals, we deliver pet meals on a daily basis upon request at no extra charge with our regularly scheduled Meals on Wheels delivery. A companion pet is sometimes a homebound senior’s only ‘family’ member.
