Mission Statement

For many seniors in our community, Meals on Wheels can be the difference between remaining in their own homes or relocating to a nursing facility. The nutritious meal, friendly visit and safety check help them cope with three of the biggest threats of aging; hunger, isolation and loss of independence. Research proves when seniors have the right support they gain greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays and live longer. Meals on Wheels recipients report improved health, security and independence.

Description

Williamsburg Area Meals On Wheels was formed in 1974 to fight hunger and to serve the growing needs of our community. Delivering and preparing hot, nutritious meals daily to vulnerable adults and families in the Williamsburg area is at our organization’s core, however it is so much more than that.

Our volunteers provide companionship and ensure the health and safety of our clients, working collaboratively with complimentary organizations in the Williamsburg Area to further support as needed.
