Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Nutritious home delivered meals, free or affordable to homebound persons who are unable to acquire or prepare healthy meals for themselves during their short or long-term period of disability.

With culinary degree holding chefs and registered dietitians, we work to create attractive, nutritious meals that reach a diverse clientele. We purchase traditional marketing and utilize modern, free social media outreach to connect both with potential clients and their family members who may be signing them up.

Our capacity building strategies focus around following research trends for our market, participating in a national coalition, and surveying our clients routinely.

We have a service area that covers two counties. We are willing and ready to accept more Meals on Wheels providers through mergers or as a vendor. We also partner with organizations servicing disabilities services and county and state government.

Throughout the lifetime of the organization we have delivered over 7 million meals. That was over the course of 50 years. But extreme acceleration of growth over the last few years has lead to now delivering 175,000 a year!

But more than just serving more people, more meals. It's important to identify that we are now serving higher quality meals that are nutritionally based to ensure improvement in health. We also have expanded a need so much to respond to clients and grow programs that we have at least one to two interns every hear (half of them have been able to be hired by the end of their service year). We are purchasing a new building that will also allow for us to increase our programs provided.

Lastly, we just became a waiver program, allowing us to service more clients.
