To sustain the independence of those we serve by providing services and activities regarding nutrition, advocacy, education and recreation through the Meals on Wheels Spokane program and the Mid-City Concerns Senior Center.
With the help of more than 450 volunteers, we serve over 500 meals daily and more than 180,000 meals each year. The objective of Meals on Wheels Spokane is to provide the proper nutrition to those individuals who cannot meet the need on their own. This service allows individuals to remain in their own homes and reduce premature out of home placement. It also allows a patient to leave a hospital, nursing care or rehab earlier, thereby encouraging the convalescing process in the familiar surroundings of the persons own home. This service is available to people of all income levels, age groups, either on a temporary or permanent basis without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, handicap or political affiliation.
Meals on Wheels Spokane has been serving the seniors of our proud town since 1967. For more than 50 years we have been a steady and reliable partner for our elderly neighbors feeding their bodies and souls.
Meals on Wheels Spokane is starting a new chapter and adventure to better serve our seniors! We are taking a big step forward and transitioning our meals to being produced internally in our very own kitchen! This change will bring enhanced menus, increased efficiency and cost savings, partnership opportunities within our community, and much more.
We are partnering is GiveBigWA to raise funds to bring in the equipment necessary to produce and freeze up to 1000 meals daily! This equipment will allow us to continually add seniors and eliminate any need to put anyone on a waiting list. It will bring extra meals to community partners for families and homeless. Please consider joining us in this exciting project and help eradicate hunger in Spokane.
