Established in 1985, East Cooper Meals on Wheels delivers over 400 meals daily to homebound neighbors.
Out of an abundance of caution for the health of our volunteers, staff, and homebound recipients, we have temporarily suspended our normal operations. We will deliver a supply of frozen meals to recipients every Monday and Friday until further notice. We are still able to serve anyone newly quarantined at home due to a COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure. More details available here!
Our biggest fundraiser of the year may be postponed until November, but your homebound neighbors are counting on Meals on Wheels for healthy food right now. Help us keep the meals moving by bidding on one of the packages in our first-ever online auction. There's something for everyone, whether you're ready to gather with friends, need to entertain the kids or out-of-town guests, craving a staycation, or simply want to enjoy the beautiful weather in your own backyard. Bidding closes Wednesday, April 21st at 6 p.m., so don't delay! View all the packages here.
Growing In Our Empathy for One Another
The pandemic has given each of us an opportunity to experience what it's like to be homebound - limited access to essential supplies, feelings of loneliness, and frustration with changes to our normal routines. For the homebound, this is their reality. This IS their "normal" every single day. Sometimes it's temporary, such as following surgery, and sometimes it's for a lifetime. Thanks to our community, they'll never miss a meal!
It Takes a Village
We are 100% community funded, and we have 450+ volunteers. Without this amazing "village," we wouldn't be able to deliver meals at no charge to your homebound neighbors. Thank you for showing your homebound neighbors that they are not alone, in good times and when things are far from normal.
