Meals On Wheels

Meals on Wheels

Hot meals, warm smiles, independence, and peace of mind. Each day we deliver a hot, nutritious meal and provide a daily check-in to the homebound, elderly, or ill through a dedicated volunteer force.

Made possible by generous donors, fundraising, and community support, this evolving program has nourished the health, independence, and spirit of those in need since 1958. Now celebrating over 60 years of service, Meals On Wheels continues to extend its reach with innovative efforts, community collaborations, and gratifying results.
