Welcome to North Tonawanda Meals on Wheels
Welcome… and thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to browse around and sincerely hope that the information you find is valuable. Our organization continues to strive for excellence, and if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
We are a nonprofit, volunteer-based service organization dedicated to providing nourishing food to homebound residents.
We provide hot, nutritious, cost effective mid-day meals to frail, disabled, homebound persons living in the Twin Cities. These meals promote healthy lifestyle choices, support daily well-being, and enable independent living for as long as safely possible.
The seniors we serve live alone, are dealing with an injury, illness, or disability, and are unable to shop or prepare adequate meals for themselves. The two healthful meals and daily companionship provided by Meals on Wheels volunteers and staff keep these clients living independently and with dignity in their own homes.
The high quality meals which are prepared on-site are delivered by our dedicated volunteer drivers and servers who also bring:
- Monday thru Friday contact.
- A warm smile.
- A listening ear.
- Caring attitude.
- A kind word.
- And a check on their well-being.
We deliver to any person in the areas of North Tonawanda and City of Tonawanda who is housebound and unable to prepare or obtain adequate meals due to long-term illness/disability, short-term convalescence or family absence. Our service is provided without regard to age, sex, race or religion. There is no income limit. We receive referrals from hospitals and other health agencies, advocacy agencies, family/caregiver, physicians, as well as self-referrals.
