What is Eastside Meals on Wheels?
Eastside Meals on Wheels is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We provide warm and nutritious meals five days a week to seniors 60 years of age or older who cannot prepare their own adequate meals. Frequent interactions with our volunteers helps combat the social isolation faced by older adults, addresses safety hazards, and provides holistic care.
Our meal delivery helps individuals stay in their own homes longer without the trauma and significant cost of nursing home care. We can provide a senior with Meals on Wheels for an entire year for the same cost as being in the hospital for one day or a nursing home for 10.
Serving warm and nutritious meals to older adults and individuals with disabilities in Northeast Minneapolis, Southeast Minneapolis, and St. Anthony Village.
Keeping our vulnerable neighbors safer, healthier, and more independent in their homes and communities.
