One of the very special ministries provided by Naples District Council of Saint Vincent de Paul is Meals-on-Wheels. Using only our own donations, volunteers and facilities we annually deliver over 85,000 meals to the homebound throughout Collier County. No government funding is used for this wonderful ministry.
