Meals on Wheels Charity Profile

We will deliver daily hot and healthy meals to anyone in Jefferson County who is homebound or for any reason is unable to prepare at least one balanced meal per day, regardless of his or her age, income, infirmity, race, gender, or neighborhood. Our goal is to ensure our clients can remain independent in their homes for as long as safely possible. The service meets two essential needs: (1) ensuring our clients receive a healthy, well-balanced daily meal to prevent malnutrition, and (2) monitoring our client’s well-being, and summoning the client’s caregiver of record, or emergency help, if needed. The drivers also bring a little cheer into the client’s life with a daily visit, since many clients are quite isolated. Meal preparation starts early each morning at the Charles Town Presbyterian Church. A typical meal consists of a meat, fish, or casserole; two vegetables, fruit, bread, margarine, dessert and beverage. Special care is taken for those requiring diabetic meals or have critical individual needs. The prepared meals are packed by volunteer packers and placed into hot and cold food boxes for delivery. The volunteer drivers and visitor load the food boxes in their vehicles for delivery throughout the county. The county is served via routes requiring 1 ˝ to 2 hours to complete. The program is carried out through the efforts of 80 dedicated volunteers, one paid part time cook/kitchen manager, and two paid part-time schedulers/office administrators. The program is funded through three sources (1) direct donations from the client, client’s relatives and friends (2) the United Way of the Eastern Panhandle and the Combined Federal Campaign (3) Fund raisers; individual donations; donations from churches and service organizations; grants.
