Meals on Wheels' mission is to provide good nutrition to the elderly, the sick and the mentally and physically handicapped of our community and also to provide a social contact with the client.
Meals on Wheels delivers a noon time meal to those in our community who are essentially homebound. Our service began in 1965 and continues today operating five routes, delivering approximately 125 meals each day. Our primary focus is nutrition; however, the social contact the volunteers have with our clients proves to be as important as the nutrition. Revenue to support administrative costs, supplies, equipment, insurance, operating expenses and vehicle purchase and maintenance comes from contributions. The program is also funded, in part, by a Community Development Block Grant, City of Evansville, Indiana; the Vanderburgh Medical Alliance; and Bristol Myers Squibb.
