The award-winning State College Area Meals on Wheels program has served more than a million meals since it was founded in 1971. A staff of three and an army of volunteers prepare, package, and deliver the food to clients throughout the State College School District.
Meals on Wheels delivers food to qualified, homebound individuals every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 10:45 am and 12:15 pm. Each client receives one hot meal and a bag supper meal on a delivery day.
