Description

Meals on Wheels People was founded in 1970. We provide hot noon meals to seniors in neighborhood dining rooms throughout the greater metropolitan area and deliver Meals-On-Wheels to homebound seniors. We serve over 1.2 million meals per year

Our vision

No senior will go hungry or experience social isolation.
