Union County Meals On Wheels is a volunteer organization whose purpose is to deliver a midday meal five times a week to persons who are unable to prepare or obtain a hot meal for themselves. Client qualification depends solely on the person's incapacity, either temporary or permanent. Age and financial status are not issues, although clients are expected to contribute to costs if capable. Donations from sponsors, local benefators and findraising events underwrite costs for indigent clients while volunteers deliver the meals.
The all volunteer organization uses 60 drivers on 10 routes and delivers 2000 meals monthly.
Union County Meals On Wheels began in 1979 and has been officially recognized as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization since September 29, 1989.
