No senior will go hungry or experience social isolation.
The mission of the Meals on Wheels People is to enrich the lives of seniors and assist them in maintaining independence by making nutritious food, social contacts and other resources easily accessible. To the extent possible we will also serve disabled and institutionalized individuals and other nutritionally at-risk populations. We accomplish this through an organization that is community based, emphasizes volunteer involvement and is financially sound.
Integrity, Respect, Inclusion, Creativity, Compassion, Committment
The Meals on Wheels People was founded in 1970. We provide hot noon meals to seniors in neighborhood dining rooms throughout the greater Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area and deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors. In 2012 we served 1.2 million meals.
