V9i5 Meals on Wheels

Narrated by Matt Davies Voiceover

Join us on Thursday, June 20 at 6pm to celebrate 50 years and support the Mid-Columbia’s local Meals on Wheels program!

Devoted to caring for seniors aged 60 and above in Benton and Franklin counties, our passion remains unwavering. As we mark this significant milestone, we reflect on the decades spent not only nourishing our seniors but also ensuring that each individual feels genuinely valued. Our commitment is reflected in our donation-only basis, driven by the belief that no one should go without a warm, nutritious meal.

Throughout these five decades, we’ve expanded our reach, serving seniors at not one, not two, but eight senior dining sites within Benton and Franklin counties. Yet, for those homebound seniors without the means to prepare their own meals and lacking a support system, we’ve extended our care to their doorstep. From Monday to Friday, we proudly deliver delicious and nutritious meals, ensuring no homebound elderly person ever feels isolated or hungry.

We are thrilled to share the uplifting story of Dan, a cherished member of our community whose life has been profoundly impacted by your support, and who exemplifies the game-changing impact of your contributions.

Dan passionately shares: “Thanks to Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels, my A1C dropped from 11.1 to 8.5 in just three months! Eating healthier, especially the delicious salads, has been a game-changer. Grateful for MOW, the friends I’ve made, and the kindness from staff and volunteers. I’ll keep spreading the goodness!”

At Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels, our commitment to safety and reliability is uncompromising. Our dedicated Meals on Wheels volunteers undergo thorough background checks and receive comprehensive training, reinforcing the trust you place in our services.

As we celebrate 50 years of serving our community, we invite you to join us in making a profound difference through your continued support and involvement. Together, we can ensure that the next 50 years are marked by the same unwavering dedication to the well-being of our beloved seniors.
