– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –
The Dalles Meals On Wheels is a non-profit dedicated to serving the 60 and older people in our area for a suggested donation of $3.75 a meal, or people with disabilities under 60 who qualifies through the Aging and People with disabilities.
We provide a hot meal Monday thru Friday in our dining room and for the home deliveries. We also offer frozen meals for the weekend and holidays for our home delivery people.
The Meals On Wheels volunteer drivers also provide a safety check for the home delivery people when they deliver the meals.
We have over 60 volunteers who help M.O.W in many different areas.
Some volunteers are drivers, others work the sign desk, setting the dining room and helping the kitchen staff.
Our goal is to insure that people over 60 in our community never have to go hungry, due to financial issues or because they can no longer shop or cook for themselves.
By providing nutritious meals we also help provide choices.
