Meals on Wheels America is the leadership organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network serves virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million staff and volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity. By providing funding, leadership, education, research and advocacy support, Meals on Wheels America empowers its local member programs to strengthen their communities, one senior at a time.
In 2020, Meals on Wheels America established Meals on Wheels Health (MOWH) to formalize its health-related partnerships and service offerings to ensure a consistent experience across its local Meals on Wheels programs. MOWH acts as a catalyst for partnerships with health payors and implements them through collaboration and cooperation between MOWH and local Meals on Wheels member programs.
