Meal Service

Meals On Wheels of Tampa is committed to the mission of “Nourishing and enriching the independent lives of the homebound and seniors.”  We do this by sending a volunteer to deliver a hot, nutritious meal to someone who has difficulty shopping for or preparing a meal in Tampa. Our map of service is below, home meal delivery is available in the identified areas. To learn more, please click here.

Meals are delivered Monday through Friday between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m (2 frozen weekend meals are provided on Friday).  We ask that the recipient remains home during this time frame to receive the meal.  If a recipient has a doctor’s appointment, please contact the office at (813)238-8410 by 12:00 p.m. the previous day so your name can be removed from the route.  Volunteers are not allowed to leave meals on the front porch or in a cooler in the case you are not home.

If you are homebound or a senior, or you know someone who is, we want to help. Be sure to fill out the Get A Meal Form.  After you submit the completed Get A Meal Form, you will receive a confirmation phone call from the intake coordinator within five business days. Meal service will begin immediately following the confirmation phone call. To learn more, please click here.

Safety Check

The act of volunteers stopping by the home each meal service day, allows for a safety check.  If a recipient does not answer the door or the telephone and/or if something seems unusual with a recipient, volunteers are instructed to notify the office immediately.  Office staff will then respond by reaching out to the emergency contact on file. To learn more, please click here.

Special Deliveries

Every birthday is celebrated with a special sweet treat and card.  We also provide hurricane preparedness packs, produce deliveries, and holiday treats, free of charge to our recipients.  This is our special way of showing our appreciation and care for everyone we serve.
