Volunteers fuel our MISSION
Berkeley County Meals on Wheels has over 150 active volunteers that assist with the cooking, packaging, and delivery of every meal. They offer their time, care, and loyalty, making it possible for us to keep our mission alive.
NO ONE SHOULD GO
Berkeley County Meals on Wheels provides hot nutritious low-cost meals for homebound, disabled, and convalescing residents of Berkeley County, West Virginia. By delivering right to their door our recipients are able to sustain their independence within their homes. Serving Berkeley County since 1971.
SENIOR ISOLATION and HUNGER
Even the most independent among us, if fortunate to live long enough, may experience a decline in mobility or health that can strip away our independence and diminish the quality of our lives. Great advances in medicine have extended our average life expectancy to a record high of 78.7 years. Living longer means more years spent in the struggles that accompany old age. Add to that the increase in geographic mobility of our families and the result is millions of seniors left behind, hungry and alone.
Fueled by a commitment to address senior hunger and isolation, Meals on Wheels provides the basic support that seniors need to maintain their health and independence in virtually every community in America. [Meals on Wheels Health is an initiative of Meals on Wheels America that brings together the nationwide Meals on Wheels network in support of the achievements of the healthcare system of its triple bottom line goals.]
