Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee, Inc.
The mission of Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee, Inc. is to assist individuals to live independently by providing nutrition and caring supportive services.
While initially founded in 1972, with the purpose of providing hot, nutritious meals to the elderly and disabled residents of Manatee County, Meals on Wheels of Manatee, Inc. became so much more. The organization grew over the years in response to community needs, and the "PLUS" was eventually added to the name as a way of representing the many other service offered.
Essential programs that assist people to live independently include:
- Adult Day Care
- Nutrition/Home-Delivered Meals
- Health Monitoring
- Senior Enrichment Center
- Senior Wheels/Transportation
- The Food Bank of Manatee
- Volunteer Services
