Who We Are

Our Mission

To provide home delivered meals and transportation services to the homebound elderly in Montgomery County.

Our Vision

A community that feeds every homebound seniors in need.

Why Meals on Wheels

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.

As such, our cause is simple – to improve the lives of the homebound elderly in Montgomery County.

As one of the most pressing public health problems of our time, Meals on Wheels has a solution that benefits everyone – the senior, their family, the volunteer, and the community.

As we age, we enter a continuum of physical decline. Most of us will reach a point where we are not ready for nursing home care, but do need assistance to remain at home.

Social Security and Medicare, although important as we age, do not provide services to prepare meals for the disabled. Local family members are often overwhelmed, while those at a distance are unable to provide daily physical support.

This reality leaves many of our homebound elderly hungry and isolated.

For more information, please review our financials or download our Case for Support.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to make Montgomery County a place where growing older doesn’t mean being forgotten.

Meals on Wheels Montgomery County is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit. Every dollar stays local to serve Montgomery County.
