Who We Are
To provide home delivered meals and transportation services to the homebound elderly in Montgomery County.
A community that feeds every homebound seniors in need.
Formerly known as the Friendship Center, our organization was founded in 1973 to meet the growing needs of the aging population. Over time, demand changed and we adapted into what is now Meals on Wheels Montgomery County.
Through the change, one thing never wavered – our dedication to local seniors.
Whether it is from physical limitations, mental complications, or dwindling finances, many seniors become homebound as they age. Daily tasks, such as grocery shopping and preparing meals, become impossible.
Meals on Wheels Montgomery County exists to improve the lives of these homebound seniors. Serving more than 500 people each weekday, we help our aging neighbors remain well nourished, connected to the community, and independent within the comfort of their own home.
By remaining independent, seniors alleviate the stress of caregiving often felt by their family, friends, and neighbors while also avoiding the high costs of nursing home care. In fact, Meals on Wheels Montgomery County delivers an entire year’s worth of meals to one homebound person at a cost lower than one day in a hospital or six days in a nursing home.
