Mission Statement

To nourish and enrich the lives of homebound seniors with compassion and love.

Description

MOWPB’s program is designed to address the needs of America’s most vulnerable senior population, the homebound, by delivering a meal and so much more. Our mission is centered on providing three life essentials: (1) nutritious well-balanced meals, (2) a friendly hello and smile to encourage companionship and ease isolation and (3) a watchful eye on the safety and health of our seniors. Our kitchen volunteers plate freshly cooked meals each morning, Monday through Friday. Our delivery volunteers are bringing a smile along with the meals 3 days a week (our COVID-19 schedule). Our three-part platform ensures homebound seniors have access to adequate nutrition, human connection, and emergency medical attention when necessary. All too often, these essentials are lost when homebound seniors live alone. Volunteers are the wheels beneath our meals and keep our program in motion.
