Welcome to Meals on Wheels

One of our cooksYour community Meals on Wheels is a non-profit community service preparing and delivering a variety of nutritious meals.  We serve the home bound residents of  Westlake, North Olmsted, Olmsted Falls and Olmsted Township who have difficulty shopping and preparing nutritious meals.

Our Meals on Wheels is not government subsidized and funded through food services plus generous community donations   Under the direction of Executive Director, Wendi Schwartz,  our head cook prepares tasty nutritious meals delivered by  dozens of volunteer drivers.  We have been cooking and delivering meals to the home bound since 1975.

Our nutrition program provides more than a meal; we offer caring contact, security and peace of mind.

Nutritious Meals Delivered Five Days a Week

With a small army of volunteers we prepare meals daily and deliver five days a week between 11 AM and 12 PM.   Unlike some services that delivered prepackaged meals, we pride ourselves in cooking meals each day.  Our tasty nutritious are cooked with the same care as you would in your own kitchen!  

One delivery each day brings both a hot and cold meal. Deliveries are made between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.  

Volunteer

We can’t deliver on our promise without your help!   Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks and with flexible hours.  The core of our volunteers help with meal preparation and delivery.  However, there are other needs such a grant writers, promotion creation, phone calls and many other things.   Have a special talent?  Let Wendi know and we can probably use it!      Volunteer Now!
