Welcome to Meals On Wheels of Tampa
Imagine you have a family member – a parent or grandparent – who is homebound, struggling, and isn’t eating well. You’re worried about them but, due to where you live or your own schedule, you can’t provide them with the healthy meals that you know they need. Or imagine that person is you. Imagine, because of age, disabilities, or health problems, you can’t stand long enough to cook a meal. Imagine that you’re unable to just hop in a car to go to the grocery store or to go out to eat. Life is a struggle. Perhaps walking is a struggle. You’re hungry. You feel isolated and alone. Where can you turn for help? The answer is Meals On Wheels of Tampa.
Meals On Wheels of Tampa has been committed to nourishing and enriching the independent lives of the homebound and seniors of Tampa since 1975. Today, Meals On Wheels of Tampa serves over 700 people with a hot meal during the lunch hour. Meals On Wheels of Tampa is a 4-star charity and relies on its community for support by not accepting government funding.

Kick off the holiday season by giving back to your community in a meaningful way! Help support Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s Produce On Wheels program on #GivingTuesday.
Occurring this year on November 28th, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
With support from you and our community partners, Feeding Tampa Bay and Sanwa Farmers Market, we can provide fresh produce to all 800 homebound and senior meal recipients one Saturday each month. These Saturday morning deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables have been a huge success!! And we have successfully demonstrated an increase in servings of daily fruit and vegetable intake with help from our partner the University of South Florida’s College of Public Health.
Each delivery costs approximately $1,000. Let’s come together this #GivingTuesday to raise funds for an entire year of POW! deliveries, including operational costs, to help reach our goal of $10,000.
Contribute to POW! by visiting www.MOWTampa.org on Tuesday, November 28th!
