COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update Learn More


Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Home Delivered Meals in Central Minnesota

Meals Delivered Directly to Your Home

For someone who is housebound, having a friendly visitor during the week is just as important as the tasty meals being delivered.

The Home Delivered Meals program strives to bring properly balanced, nutritious meals to elderly, sick and handicapped homebound people within St. Cloud, Monticello, Sartell, Sauk Rapids and Waite Park.

Dedicated volunteers from area churches, businesses and service groups deliver the meals. The volunteers also serve as a daily contact for meal recipients.


  • Helping people stay in their own homes or apartments longer
  • Providing support for people who are recently discharged from the hospital or nursing home
  • Improving the nutritional status of those served


The Home Delivered Meals program serves people age 60 and older, or those who:

  • Are unable to prepare their own meals because of illness or disability.
  • Find shopping difficult or impossible.
  • Lack cooking facilities and cannot go out to eat.

People interested in this program can refer themselves or have their families, physicians or a health care agency make the referral.
