Meals are prepared fresh, daily in our kitchen.
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 provides hot, fresh, nutritious meals to the homebound, disabled, and elderly throughout the Tampa community every day, fulfilling its mission of “Nourishing the body…Enriching the spirit…and Strengthening the community…” . Each meal is delivered directly to the doorstep of the homebound individual by a friendly, caring volunteer at or around the noontime hour.
Give the gift of fresh produce this giving season!
#Giving Tuesday – Tuesday, December 1st
A National Day of Giving
Help support Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s newest program: POW! (Produce on Wheels!) this #GivingTuesday.
With the support of our community friends and partners, we can provide fresh produce to all 700 homebound and senior meal recipients one Saturday each month. These Saturday morning deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables have been a huge success!!
Each delivery costs a total of approximately $1,000. Let’s come together to raise funds for 3 additional POW! deliveries, including operational costs: Goal of $3,000.
Every gift, no matter the amount, is important!
Here is a special note we received after this past POW! delivery:
We are calling on you, on this national day of giving, to bring smiles to those in need in our community by donating to Meals On Wheels of Tampa by visiting www.MOWTampa.org or by calling 813-238-8410, on Tuesday, December 1st.
Thank you donors, volunteers, and community partners for all of your support!
If you are looking for that genuine way to give back and share your love to those beyond your family and friends, please consider volunteering to deliver holiday gift bags on Saturday, December 19th or POW! (Produce On Wheels) on Saturday, January 16th. These opportunities are a great way to bring cheer to our homebound neighbors who do not have friends or family nearby during the holidays. You can bring your kids along too! Volunteers are welcome to bake their own goodies in addition to the cookies that will be provided.
Not able to deliver on these dates but want to give back?
