Meals on Wheels of Stark & Wayne Counties
Rating: 5 stars 1 1 review 140
Location: 2363 Nave St SE Massillon OH 44646 USA
Results: Rising fuel costs, increases in food prices, and aging equipment have resulted in a new focus on fundraising for our agency. In 2012 we introduced The Main Event, a dinner and auction to be held annually to help us underwrite the cost of meals that our clients cannot afford to fully pay for on their own. We have also actively worked with community foundations to assist with underwriting the costs of our client's meals so that we can continue to provide 1,500 meals per day in our two-county service area.
Target demographics: Home-delivered meals are available to homebound individuals of any age. Congregate dining is available to seniors age 60 and over who can access transportation.
Geographic areas served: All of Stark and Wayne Counties, Ohio

My grandmother depended on my mother for grocery shopping after she lost the ability to drive. She was well enough to cook her own meals, but homebound due to the result of multiple strokes. When my mother passed away, she became dependent on the neighbors and we worried that she wouldn't eat healthy meals if the neighbors didn't stop by or remember that she needed food.
If it were not for Meals On Wheels of Stark & Wayne Counties, grandma would not have had been guaranteed a hot meal 5 days a week, giving the rest of the family comfort in knowing she was not only eating healthy, but also receiving a visitor Monday through Friday. It was the peace of mind that this agency gave to her family that lived out of town that proved so invaluable.
