Meals On Wheels

Founded in 1973, Bloomington Meals On Wheels provides over 1000 nutritious meals per month to homebound individuals who are unable to cook for themselves due to an accident, illness, or disability.   Meals On Wheels reduces health care costs by allowing clients to recover at home.  The program delivers caring and nourishment daily to seniors in our community.  Under our partnership, the Foundation provides fundraising and investment support and advice to Meals on Wheels.  Visit
