Changing Lives One Meal at a Time

Hand delivering meals to older adults since 1970.


Our Impact


Volunteer Hours/Week

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.



Meals Prepared/Week

We prepare and serve nutritious meals to thousands of older adults every day with a variety of options: vegetarian, diabetic, low sodium, low cholesterol and ethnic choices to name a few!

Older Adults Welcome

We proudly serve our healthy meals to anyone over the age of 60, regardless of immigration or refugee status, ethnicity/race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or income status.

Serving Our Community

In addition to our home delivery service, we have operated dozens of dining centers throughout Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties for nearly 50 years. We invite all older adults to come and enjoy fresh, healthy lunches Monday through Friday.

I cannot praise highly enough my experience with Meals on Wheels People. It's humanity at its finest!
