A charitable community service organization founded on October 28, 1937 to help residents in  the West Milwaukee area.  The same desire that the founders had in helping the residents in our community continues just as strong in our current membership.  The Club donates scholarships for area high school students and also donates to various community and blind work organizations.  Pershing School students and residents with special needs have also been helped. The West Milwaukee Lions Club is the only charitable community service organization serving the residents of West Milwaukee.

Home delivered meals are funded by the Milwaukee County Department on Aging and managed through Goodwill Senior Services. The program promotes independent living for homebound older adults through the delivery of a hot, nutritious noon meal Monday through Friday. Frozen weekend meals are available when an assessment shows a need for additional help.

  • living alone or with no other adult living in the same house, building, or area who is able or willing to prepare meals
  • able to feed themselves or have someone able and willing to help feed them
  • home at time of delivery
  • The need for meals and type of diet must be verified by an applicant’s physician or general diets may be approved by the Senior Meal Program Director when no physician’s diet order is available.

To apply for home delivered meals, call the Resource Center (414) 289-6874.

Information and Assistance staff will ask questions to fill out the application over the phone.
