Sponsor a Route

Meals on Wheels has 38 different meal delivery routes throughout Buncombe County!
“Meals on Wheels has helped me thrive.  I was 100 pounds since 2005 after my cancer.  With Meals on Wheels I have gained and maintained at 120 pounds, a much healthier weight”  

By sponsoring a route, you help alleviate hunger, increase nutrition, decrease loneliness, and keep our community’s homebound seniors living independently at home where they want to be!  

In order to sponsor a route your group should deliver meals at least once a week and contribute an annual contribution to assist with the cost of meals. 

 “All the people are kind and make me happy and feel better because they care about me.”

Please join us in welcoming our first Route Sponsor!


We are grateful to the staff and residents of Deerfield for paving the way (pun intended!) and serving as our first route sponsor.  Deerfield residents deliver meals 5 days a week on the Shiloh Route without fail and have been doing so for a number of years.  They have donated over $6,000 to cover the cost of food to provide meals for their route.  In the year 2000, as part of their first major expansion at this Life Care retirement community, they opened a Community Center and the first meal prepared in the kitchen was a Thanksgiving meal for Meals on Wheels!  This year will be their 20th year serving a Thanksgiving meal for all of Buncombe County's Meals on Wheels seniors.
