Mission Statement

The vision of Meals on Wheels People is that no senior will go hungry or experience social isolation. We enrich the lives of seniors and assist them in maintaining their independence by making nutritious food, social contacts and other resources easily available. Our organization is community based, emphasizes volunteer involvement and is financially sound.


Meals on Wheels People is a nonprofit, secular organization that has provided seniors with hot meals and opportunities for health, hope and friendship since 1970. Each year more than 7,500 volunteers prepare and deliver 1.3 million hot meals to seniors in the Portland-Vancouver metro area. The loyal support of our volunteers combined with the generous financial contributions of our donors keeps the vision of Meals on Wheels Centers alive.

Would you recommend Meals on Wheels People?

I've volunteered for Meals on Wheels a few times doing different kinds of activities and enjoyed it each time. The people are great, not just the staff, but the other volunteers, which makes the time fly by! Plus it's such a fantastic cause that really helps so many people get through the challenges of their lives.
