Metro Meals on Wheels Background

The neighborhood- and community-based Meals on Wheels programs in the Twin Cities were started in the 1970s by churches and community organizations that understood the importance of “neighbors helping neighbors.” These geographically based programs continue to help seniors and people with disabilities remain independent and in their own homes, thanks to the delivery of hot, nutritious meals and friendly visits with dedicated volunteers. Today Metro Meals on Wheels is an association of 32 Meals on Wheels programs that provides essential services to its members on a metro-wide scale in a cost-efficient manner. Our mission is, with our members, to lead the effort to ensure that individuals in our community receive nutritious meals and the human connection they need to enable them to live independently.
