Meals on Wheels

OVER 42,000

VOLUNTEERED HOURS IN 2018

Our caring volunteers dedicate several hours every week to bringing food and comfort to older adults in their community. Together we’ve done a lot. But there’s always more to do.

OVER 8,000

MEALS DELIVERED/ WEEK

We serve nutritious meals to thousands of older adults every day with a variety of options. Our meals meet one third of the daily nutrition requirements for older adults and provide 3 oz of protein, 2 servings of fruit/vegetables, whole grain baked product, dessert, and milk. 

ALL

OLDER ADULTS WELCOME

We proudly serve our healthy meals to all homebound, older and disabled adults, regardless of immigration or refugee status, ethnicity/race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY

In addition to our home delivery service, we operate dozens of dining centers throughout Hillsborough county. We invite all older adults to come and enjoy fresh, healthy lunches at any of our congregate dining sites Monday through Friday.

“I had a hard time walking and had difficulty cooking my own meals. I am happy to see these caring people come to my door. The meals are very tasty and the people are friendly. This made my life more enjoyable.” Catherine, 82 years old

Keeping Produce Fresh

Friday October 4, 2019

Different fruits and vegetables benefit from various storage temperatures. Some produce is better kept in the refrigerator (40˚F or below) rather than at room temperature.

Fruit

· Cherries, and Berries (Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, and Blackberries) should be kept in a dry container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Wash them right before you eat them so that they do not soak up extra water and get mushy.

· Citrus can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks....
