Mission & History

A volunteer-driven non-profit organization, Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County delivers nutritious meals as well as provides well-being checks and social visits  to 420 clients each weekday on 33 delivery routes throughout the Lehigh Valley. 1,020 individual and group volunteers deliver almost 160,000 meals each year. Our clients are seniors or adults with disabilities who are primarily homebound and unable to manage meal preparation. We served 877 clients in 2014. We also provide grocery shopping, pet food for clients with pets, and emergency meals for use when we can't deliver due to bad weather.

Mission:

We enhance the wellness and independence of adults, who are primarily homebound, by providing nutritious meals and supportive services.
 
 
Vision: 
 
Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County will be a sustainable organization that will reach and serve all Lehigh County adults in need of home meal assistance to support their personal independence

 
History:
 
In the spring of 1970, executives of four Lehigh County social service agencies and concerned citizens voiced great concern over malnutrition among seniors in our community. This grassroots group created a task force to develop a plan to alleviate this problem.

After nine months of careful planning, Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County was launched with the support of Lehigh County Commissioners.  On February 1, 2021 the first group of 50 volunteers began delivering a hot meal and cold bagged meal to 9 clients on 3 routes.
