You may have seen on TV news or read in the Erie Times News that our agency (among others) was defunded by United Way taking effect July 1, 2018. We want to assure our clients and their families that our agency has a sustainability plan and that no services will be cut or eliminated. However, these funds need to be replaced and with the help of the community we have served for over 47 years we will do just that! Thanks for your concern and support!

WELCOME to Meals On Wheels in Erie, Pennsylvania where we have been delivering nutritious meals to home-bound seniors for over 46 years! Meals On Wheels Erie was founded in 1971 and now serves over 92,000 meals annually. Our mission is to “promote healthy, independent living through home delivery of nutrition services.”
We have four programs that deliver nutrition to you. Three are meal delivery programs and one is our grocery shopping and delivery service.
HOME DELIVERED MEAL PROGRAMS
1.) Our moderately priced Private Pay Meals are ready-to-heat, nutritious and served by caring volunteers directly from the kitchen to your door. Our meals are designed for home bound seniors who are or could be suffering from a nutrition deficit caused by the inability to cook or shop for food. Good nutrition is the foundation of good health.
2.) Our Under 60 Persons With Disabilities Program serves free meals to qualified disabled, home bound persons between the ages of 18 and 59. This program is limited but call to get on our waiting list.
3.) We also deliver a free food program from the Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC) for those who income and medically qualify. GECAC is the sole qualifier for these meals.

GROCERY SHOPPING & DELIVERY SERVICE
Our Grocery Shopping & Delivery Service is for those who are home bound due to age, recovery, infirmity, or disability and cannot shop for food themselves but prefer to cook for themselves. There is no minimum age for this service. This service is now county wide!
