Mission Statement/Purpose
We nourish the bodies and spirits of the homebound with a balanced meal and the human connection they need to help them live independently.

Major Accomplishments
Meals on Wheels delivered over 33,000 meals in 2013 to people in the community who were unable to prepare meals for themselves. We provide a hot meal at lunch regardless of a person’s ability to pay. We have over 150 dedicated volunteers who work to help those who are aging, infirm or disabled (mentally or physically) in our community. We have managed to create new routes to meet the continuous increase in demand and we have no waiting list for services right now.

Major Activity
We always need drivers to deliver the meals on a substitute as well as a regular basis. We need volunteers to bake home made desserts for our daily delivery. We need someone to help coordinate the donation of fruit cups for our Wednesday deliveries. We will have a benefit in the fall to help raise funds to cover the subsidy we provide our recipients who can’t cover the full cost of a meal. We will need volunteers to help plan and staff that.

Meeting Frequency
We deliver meals Monday through Friday, (even on holidays) and a route usually takes from 11:00 to 12:30 to complete.

Meeting Venue
Drivers pick up their meals for delivery at Binkley Baptist Church at 1712 Willow Road

Estimated Time Commitment for Volunteers
Time commitment varies from a two hour delivery route on an occasional basis to a weekly commitment.

Special Skills
A person needs to be able to drive and must be comfortable in approaching unfamiliar situations.
