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, Inc. delivers a hot meal Monday through Friday to homebound citizens in Shawnee and Jefferson Counties who are unable to provide proper nurishment for themselves even for a short time. the meals are delivered around the noon hour by volunteers. The underlying objective of the program is to prevent deterioration of the elderly and handicapped individuals in the community, thus making it possible for them to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible. The friendly visit with the volunteers is socially helpful and the daily visit is important in case of an emergency situation.
