The mission of Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County supports individuals who are elderly, disabled and homebound by delivering nutritious meals, reducing hunger, improving health and promoting independence.

Local professional dancers have been paired with some of Hamilton County's finest competing for the ultimate prize of being titled Dancing With Our Stars champions 2016. Audience members can also get into the action and vote for their favorite dancer or dancers to win the night's People's Choice Award. Each vote assists in bringing dancers closer to that title!
For as little as $35 per week, you can provide two healthy meals per day and help us reduce hunger among the elderly, disabled and homebound residents in our community. No amount is too small. Just $7.00 will provide meal service for one day. A donation of $145 will provide meals for an entire month for one hungry client.
Pets provide therapy and companionship. Elderly clients receiving daily meals who need assistance with the cost of feeding their pets can contact Meals on Wheels to receive a bag of dry dog food or dry cat food for their beloved companions. The pet food is delivered at the same time as the client’s regular meal.
