Located in the heart of Martinsburg, West Virginia, Berkeley County Meals on Wheels has been in operation since July 1971.  With the care, and effort of over 150 volunteers offering their time as cooks, food packers, drivers, and administrative help, we are able to deliver hot nutritious meals to the doors of upwards of 200 homebound Berkeley County recipients. That adds up to approximately 1,000 meals prepared and delivered each week! 

Our organization is driven by our Program Manager, Dianne Waldron, who gives 100% of her heart and soul to the cause and backed by a goal-focused 13-member Board of Directors (100% volunteer-based). Our amazing kitchen staff makes the task of preparing and cooking all of that food seem easy! 

WHO WE ARE

OUR HISTORY

Berkeley County Meals on Wheels was the brainchild of the Berkeley County Committee on Aging.  A group of interested county residents met in 1970 to organize and begin this program.  The first meals served in 1971 were delivered to eight clients. The program has grown significantly and to date, we have served well over ONE MILLION meals to our HOMEBOUND neighbors!

We have utilized a number of facilities… various church kitchens, the senior center kitchen, and our current location in the King's Daughters Court kitchen (formerly Daughters’ Hospital). Through the years, hundreds of volunteers have assisted us with a number of tasks - packaging meals, preparing foods, serving on the Board of Directors, delivering meals throughout the community, and fundraising efforts. These generous folks give of their time and energy willingly and freely.

Our community has generously designated hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients.  To sustain our efforts, funds are donated through grants, by individuals, organizations, businesses, and churches, United Way which understands our seniors’ needs, the Combined Federal campaign, federal monies, foundations, bequests, and various other benefactors.

Berkeley County Meals on Wheels, Inc. provides hot, nutritional, low-cost, home-delivered meals for homebound seniors and /or disabled residents of Berkeley County, enabling recipients receiving this service to sustain their independence within their homes. Serving our community since 1971, the organization has supplied well over

one million meals in responding to its mission statement.
