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.

SCMOW Begins 5-day Service! A major milestone for State College Meals on Wheels has been reached as delivery recently began for the first time on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That historic moment came on Tuesday, June 16th as 50 clients received home-delivered meals that day. We expect that number to grow quickly. Thank you to all who made this possible, especially our new volunteers and our generous donors and supporters.
Welcome New Volunteers! Thanks to all those who have recently signed up to volunteer. The response to our volunteer recruiting campaign has been fantastic and has enabled us to move forward with our plans to expand service from 3 to 5 days per week.
