Meals on Wheels Mission

Meals On Wheels - Help for our Homebound

The mission of Meals On Wheels of Asheville-Buncombe County is to provide hot, nutritious meals to the elderly homebound, thus allowing them to live in their own homes, among familiar surroundings and maintain their dignity while aging.

"I want to thank you again for the wonderful service you provided for my parents. Not only did you meet their nutritional needs but they regarded each volunteer that delivered to them their friends. That was truly the highlight of their day!  Thank you again for your kindness."       

~ M. Mackintosh


- Winter Weather Policy -

For the safety of our volunteers and staff who deliver meals throughout primary, secondary and back roads of Buncombe County, when Asheville City Schools are closed due to Winter weather, Meals On Wheels will be closed and no meal delivery will be done.  In the event of a school day delay, Meals On Wheels will still operate.  Announcements will be made on WLOS-TV and posted here.


Meals On Wheels is rolling today!
