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.

- 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.

Meal Delivery Service for Seniors in Buncombe County

MOW-ABC operates Monday thru Friday with a 11-member staff and a network of over 300 volunteers. Meal delivery is available to Buncombe County seniors age 60 and older who are homebound, without regard to race, religion, national origin, sex, handicap or ability to pay.

Approximately 85% of our operating support comes through private donations from individuals, businesses and foundations, as well as annual fundraising events such as the Plate Expectations Charity Auction, Lunch Bunch and Fall Feast.  MOW-ABC receives 15% of its funding through federal agencies.  Our local community does the rest!
