Meals On Wheels Delaware

Meals On Wheels Delaware (MOWD) provides financial resources to meal-delivery programs statewide that offer nutritious meals and independence to homebound seniors. We support these efforts through events, which raise awareness and funds to provide resources needed to alleviate hunger and loneliness for seniors throughout Delaware. Volunteer opportunities for individuals, groups, and businesses are available throughout each year.
