Serving Our Community Since 1971

Our three 2015 events--Golf Tournament, Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community and Bountiful Bowl raised over $60,000 to subsidize meals for low-income clients.  Thank you for your support.
We will no longer hold a golf tournment, but welcome your support of the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community set for June 4, 2016 and our Bountiful Bowl event in the fall.
Check back here in early 2016 for more information.

Before I had Meals on Wheels, I can remember going to bed hungry sometimes. Now I eat all kinds of good food and your volunteers are so nice. Thank you for bringing my meals to me.
