Meals on Wheels of Tampa wholly relies on the community to help support our mission. MOW Tampa is 100% community funded; we do not accept any direct government monies or grants, nor are we a United Way agency. Any kind of monetary support is helpful to nourishing and enriching the independent lives of the homebound and seniors. Community dollars have gone to build our kitchen (one of the few Meals On Wheels to have their own kitchen), the trucks, the meal bags, and heating elements just to name a few. Your dollars allow us to expand our service, to reach more people in the Tampa community and touch the lives of the homebound and seniors.
