Vegetables Arranged In A Heart Shape

We Feed the Need

Beginning with a recognized need for home-delivered meals, Ahlers Meals has grown over the years into a multi-faceted organization that caters to some of the most vulnerable populations in our communities. What’s more, we recognize the need for a diverse program that accommodates everyone. Whether you have a unique dietary requirement or specific preferences for taste, our well-rounded menu offers plenty of selections.


Our valued customers look forward to our meals every time they sit down at the table. Approved by a registered dietitian, our menu is made up of healthy, satisfying menu options you can feel good about eating.


Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are hand-picked by you. Our menu consists of over 200 meal options from well-known brands commonly found at the grocery store to suit your dietary needs and preferences. Plus, we provide plenty of room for meal and schedule adjustments as needed. Customers can order online or on paper.


We look forward to meeting our customers and want to make the ordering process simple. From our Consumer Intake Specialist to our delivery drivers, we’re here to help you navigate your order every step of the way.

We also serve your pets. We know how difficult it can be to provide for yourself and a four-legged friend who depends on you for meals every day. Learn more about receiving free food for your cat or dog through our Ahlers Angels pet meals program.

  • Thanks to the call reminders that they provide, it helps alot. The deliveries of shelf goods come in handy when the weather is bad, if I need something to eat when I am out. Thanks to all of the delivery personnel, they are always on time and that's very important.
