Grove City Area Meals on Wheels prepares and delivers hot, nutritious meals to elderly, disabled and convalescent members of the community at an affordable price. We deliver to Grove City, Leesburg, Mercer, Harrisville and Slippery Rock. Sometimes our volunteers are the only person a client sees all day, being a safety-net particularly for those living alone.

Programs Supported by Your Donations
Meals on Wheels helps people who may not be able to shop or cook for themselves and makes it possible for them to stay in their homes. The clients pay $4.00 per hot meal with the option to add a light cold supper for an additional $2.00. Our meals are made fresh, Monday-Friday, in our kitchen. Additional meals may also be ordered for the weekend and holidays. A 5-week rotation of meals is used, so there is a nice variety for our clients. Last year we served 11,744 hot meals and 4831 cold meals. Our meals are hand delivered to our clients by volunteers. They not only deliver a meal, but they also provide understanding, patience, smiles and listening ears. This is also a comfort to our client’s families, to have someone checking in on their loved ones, especially for the families who don’t live nearby.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
The cost to prepare our meals has increased by 10.5% this past year. We continue to strive to keep our fee low and affordable for our clients.
