Serve Locally

MEALS ON WHEELS

Do you have one day, one hour, and one gallon of gas you can spare? Then Meals On Wheels is the thing for you! All it takes is you picking up the meals, you driving to the route, and giving the meals to those on the route. It sounds simple, but it is a great way to love on people and bring them a meal they otherwise wouldn’t be able to have.

Routes are available, all we need is you.
