About the Organization

Metro Meals on Wheels was founded in 1997 as an association of independent Meals on Wheels programs in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area to provide support needed to meet the growing demand for nutritious home-delivered meals. Meals on Wheels programs have existed in the Twin Cities for more than 40 years. Metro Meals on Wheels was founded when the community-based programs recognized that by forming an association, each program could benefit from a partnership that allowed them to share common resources.

Metro Meals on Wheels exists to provide critical technical, fundraising, outreach and volunteer recruitment assistance to the 35-member programs. Our program meets a vital need for more than 6,800 seniors and people living with disabilities by providing regular nourishment, social connection, connecting recipients to other home-based services, and providing peace of mind to clients, caregivers and families.
