The Meals on Wheels program is successful only through the efforts of volunteers who offer their time and service to their neighbors. Individuals, clubs, and organizations help deliver meals throughout Shawnee, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties. Volunteers pick up meals between 10;30-11am, Monday-Friday, and routes take about an hour to deliver. Meals on Wheels provides more than just a meal; your smile may be the only one our seniors see in a day, and the safety check you provide enables them to remain independently in their homes longer. You will use your own vehicle to deliver. Training is provided

About Meals on Wheels Eastern Kansas

Mission Statement

We exist to nourish the elderly and/or homebound people in our community.

Description

Founded in 1972 as Mobile Meals of Topeka, Inc., Meals on Wheels Eastern Kansas delivers a hot meal Monday through Friday to homebound citizens in Shawnee, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties who are unable to provide proper nourishment for themselves. Volunteers pick up meals between 10:30-11am, and it takes about an hour to deliver them. Delivering a hot meal and safety check helps make it possible for seniors to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible. Yours may be the only smile some of our clients will see in a day.
