Looking for fresh and nutritious meal options delivered to your door or to a loved one? Whether you need meals on a temporary basis or for an indefinite period of time, we can help! For every day of the week we deliver hot evening meals to residents of Madison, Middleton, Fitchburg, Monona, and Sun Prairie. All meals come with a main entree, fruit and vegetable side dish, starch, and a dessert. If a particular item from the menu does not appeal to you, you have the option to order an alternate meal instead. Not only does our service help meet the nutritional needs of our clients, but also offers important social contact. Our drivers enjoy getting to know our clients, offer a friendly smile, and report any safety concerns.


The cost is $8.40/meal.

For $9.10/meal, we can accommodate these special diets:

  • Gluten Sensitive
  • Diabetic
  • Low Sodium
  • Vegetarian


To ensure that we are offering balanced and healthy meals, we partner with a Registered Dietitian at UW who reviews our menu monthly.

Donor and Volunteer Support

With support from donors and more than 150 volunteers, we’re doing our part to make sure no senior goes hungry in the Greater Madison Area. Our thanks go out to all volunteers and to all donors who contribute financially to the program. As a nonprofit organization, we rely heavily on local support. Without it, we would not be able to provide this service.

In order to keep up with the demand in our community, we have a great need for Volunteer Delivery Drivers. Click here to learn more about how you can help.


Independent Living, Inc. has been serving senior meals since 1973, and formally established the Evening Meals on Wheels program in 1991. It is the only Meals on Wheels program in Dane County that provides evening meals. In April 2010, the quality of our program earned Magnet Accreditation at the Exemplary Level from Meals on Wheels America. We are the first program in Wisconsin to receive this rare distinction.
