The mission of Meals-on-Wheels of Greenwich is to provide a food service that delivers tasty, nutritious meals at a low cost to any Greenwich resident in need. Our clients include the elderly, people with disabilities, handicapped and infirm who are unable to shop or cook for themselves and require home-delivered meals on a short-term or long-term basis. Our volunteers not only bring nourishment to our clients but also provide critical personal contact to a population that is often isolated.
They dedicate their time and energy to bring healthy, tasty meals to our community. Their caring and support help turn our mission into reality. Our volunteer drivers deliver meals Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:30am and 10:30, and serve as a daily contact to our clients. We currently service eleven routes throughout the Greenwich community. It takes 40 drivers per week to support our routes. Our Resources page includes information for organizations that service areas outside of Greenwich community.
Meals-on-Wheels began in October 1960, we had three clients, and served hot and cold meals two times a week. In 1961, we expanded to five times a week. By 1966, we had 28 clients. In our 55th year we served 115 clients over 600 delicious meals each week!
Meals-On-Wheels of Greenwich is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to serving the needs of the Greenwich community. Oversight of the organization is provided by the Board of Directors, comprised of community and business leaders.
