Mission: To provide daily nutritious meals, social interaction, and wellness checks for the homebound and elderly in our community.

Vision: Sarasota residents are empowered to live independently with access to services that eliminate hunger and isolation.

Power Of A Knock

Together, we can deliver.

The Power Of A Knock. 

A knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a homebound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. A knock from Meals on Wheels can even save lives.

More Than A Meal. The benefit of our service is tangible – fewer hungry, malnourished, and isolated residents. Every day, dedicated volunteers deliver a warm greeting, a heart-healthy meal, and a safety check to hundreds of people; from homebound seniors and veterans to children with disabilities.

We Need Your Help. It takes the support of the community for us to continue to provide our unmatched service to our most vulnerable citizens. Won’t you join us? Make your gift now.
