• Our Mission

    The mission of Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County, Indiana supports individuals who are elderly, disabled, chronically ill and home-bound by delivering nutritious meals, reducing hunger, improving health and promoting independence. Meals are prepared in state-approved healthcare facilities and designed by a certified registered dietitian under a physician’s prescribed supervision according to the recipient’s specific dietary needs.

    Our primary goal is to help our recipients remain independently living within the community in their own homes for as long as possible. Meals are delivered weekdays, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays (New Years Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after, Christmas Eve and Day), between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 

  • Our History

    Established in 1975, Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County, Indiana is a private, charitable 501(c)(3) organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The organization receives no state or federal funding. It relies solely on the generous support of caring individuals to supplement fundraising efforts and community grants. Meals on Wheels was introduced into Hamilton County in April of 1975 as a result of a growing need identified by our founder Mary Bray and Reverend David Garrigus of Christ United Methodist Church in Westfield. It started as a community service project delivering one meal to one recipient, and quickly grew into more than 160 clients being served daily on 16 different routes.
