Mission Statement

The mission of Meals on Wheels of Boulder is to provide nutritious meals and a daily well-being check to Boulder residents, regardless of age or income.

Organization History

In 1969, the Boulder Soroptomist Club completed a door-to-door survey to determine the needs of the elderly. Two needs were identified: nursing care in the home and delivery of a hot meal to those confined to their homes. In Sept. 1969, a steering committee of concerned citizens met to start a home delivered meal program. In December that year, Meals on Wheels of Boulder delivered its first meals to 15 clients. On December 8th, 2019, we will celebrate our 50th anniversary, having provided uninterrupted service delivering more than 2.2 million meals in 50 years!

Since that modest beginning, we have continually evolved to meet the changing needs of our clients: we've added and adjusted special diets based on scientific findings, modified our management-delivery systems, and developed new products and services.

Testimonials

"Meals on Wheels [of Boulder] was among the ways Mom was able to continue living in her own home ... until her passing."

"Enormous gratitude to volunteers who deliver our meals in all types of weather. I appreciate their devotion and timely delivery of nutritious meals to my most, most times it's the highlight of my day. This program allows many persons like myself on fixed incomes to be able to afford other luxuries, like medicine."

"[Your Tuesday evening dinners are] the one night a week when I do not eat alone."

"Mom has been gone 7 years now, but I will always be grateful to you wonderful MOW folks who helped her stay in her own home with meal delivery for several years."

"Your program and kindness were a big part in helping keep Mom in her own home, surrounded by her own things and routines. You all make a difference in people's lives in a direct way."
