Providing Crucial Services

We are neighbors helping neighbors - one meal at a time.  Our dedicated volunteers deliver both food and daily social contact to people who live alone, helping them feel safe and secure.  We are a local nonprofit organization founded in 1977 by Church Women United.  We deliver hot meals to our neighbors who cannot provide for themselves.

Meals on Wheels connects those unable to cook for themselves with those who are willing to help. Most of our volunteers deliver one day each week, but we have volunteer opportunities for non-drivers as well!  As an organization we deliver Monday through Friday at lunchtime, including holidays, delivering hot meals to clients in the Charlottesville, Scottsville, Crozet and the the surrounding county of Albemarle.

Your donations keep our doors open, paying either fully or partially for the majority of our clients' meals.  As an independent, local organization, Meals on Wheels relies on contributions from the Charlottesville/Albemarle community to support its home-delivered meals program.  While some clients are able to pay the full cost of their meals, donations from caring individuals, local businesses and community organizations are how Meals on Wheels continues to feed our clients each weekday.
