Meals On Wheels of Tampa is a proud member of the Meals on Wheels Association of Florida (MOWAF). MOWAF is a state-wide non-profit organization that joins together Meals On Wheels members and organizations to eradicate senior hunger and provide nutritious meals to the homebound and seniors of our respective communities in Florida.
MOWAF is dedicated to fulfilling its vision in three primary ways:
- Advocacy- MOWAF seeks to advocate on behalf of Florida’s senior population and on behalf of organizations serving nutritious meals to homebound and senior individuals, on both the local and state levels by joining together as one voice.
- Education- MOWAF seeks to educate the public on the issues of senior hunger and provide training and educational opportunities for its members.
- Empowerment- MOWAF seeks to empower organizations serving nutritious meals to seniors by developing on active network which can share best practices, beneficial resources and answers to the questions common to all organizations in its membership.
Recognizing its members are spread out across the state, MOWAF conducts most of its business through one hour conference calls which occur quarterly. MOWAF also holds a membership meeting each year, outside of the annual Meals On Wheels America Conference. Other sessions which advocate, educate or empower are scheduled as determined during these times.
