Welcome to Meals on Wheels of Chemung County!
Since October 26, 1970 Meals on Wheels has existed solely for the purpose of making sure no senior goes hungry in Chemung County. Each day volunteers and staff come together to prepare, package and deliver meals to the areas homebound and disabled.
We Are Meals On Wheels is more than a national campaign, it is a declaration of who we are and what we do. We are 5,000 Senior Nutrition Programs supported by 1.7 million volunteers, who deliver more than 1 million meals a day to our nation’s home bound seniors.
DoSomething.org, the largest organization for young people and social change, and AARP Foundation's Mentor Up are teaming up for the second annual Love Letters campaign that encourages young people to create handmade Valentine's Day cards to lift the spirits of older adults this holiday season. Handmade cards will be included in meal deliveries to Meals On Wheels clients across the country. The campaign runs through February 15 and young people who sign up at DoSomething.org/loveletters and report back with a photo will be eligible to win a $10,000 scholarship. Find the full details here.
Make Valentine’s Day cards to show an older adult you care.
Our first batch of valentines came from Brooklyn, NY this year.
