Reviews for Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

I deliver meals two days a week and also do grocery shopping for 2 shut-ins several times a month. I find it very gratifying to do this type of hands-on assistance to people in need of food and a friendly visit. Meals On Wheels is very efficient, well-organized and takes great care of the clients and the volunteers.
Many elderly cannot afford their meals and receive a subsidy through the agency and community contributions. These elderly people would go without warm meals if it weren't for Meals On Wheels. Great to help.

We volunteer for Market on Wheels. Such a satisfying experience for us as volunteers to aid a client who can still do their own cooking or some meal preparation but is unable to get out routinely for grocery shopping. This satisfaction is not only one sided. Our client is always happy to see us as we are to see and help her. She brings us joy as we bring a sense that someone cares for her and her well being.

Meals on Wheels of the Lehigh Valley is a fabulous organization! They provide meals, grocery delivery service and perhaps most importantly, a friendly smile to many who are unable to leave their homes and don't have family that are able to visit. I am honored to volunteer with this organization.

I am also fortunate to be a Market on Meals volunteer with Meals on Wheels. All the staff at Meals on Wheels go above and beyond to make sure the people they serve are treated with dignity and respect. The personal connection is such an important part of their mission. Grocery shopping for my client is always a highlight of my week. I love doing this and am so happy to be a small part of a great organization!

It makes me feel good seeing the smiles on the faces of our clients who require assistance shopping. I wish I had more time to shop for others. Meals on Wheels is a blessing for their clients.

I am a volunteer for this excellent organization. I am so impressed by the dedication and compassion the volunteers and staff show toward the people they serve! Providing healthy meals and friendly visits to those that need assistance but want to remain in their own homes provides huge benefits to the entire community. Keep up the great work!

Being a volunteer shopper for the "Grocery on Wheels"program all I can say is in the last 40 plus years that I had been employed in the corporate world this job paid the least financially BUT paid the most emotionally and fully satisfies the soul with the true meaning of giving back....There has been no finer "Meaning of Life"experience for me....Thank you..

I have volunteered in the Carbon county area MOW program for a while and recently moved into Allentown-Lehigh County..I was intriqued by the new program called "Market on Wheels"a thinking out of the box food delivery concept very needed by many in the area...I am happy to report not only am I enjoying volunteering and the clients we serve, BUT the staff and coordinator of the program have nothing BUT the best interests of our clients at heart regarding all decisions....A true joy for me getting back WAY MORE than I give...Thank you MOW....Jeffrey L. Minnich Sr.
