To provide nutritionally-balanced, home-delivered meals to homebound elderly and disabled citizens to reduce institutionalization.
More than just a meal.
With over 100 dedicated volunteers, we are able to deliver meals each day to those who need it most. Our volunteers currently cover seventeen delivery routes to ensure our clients receive a hot meal every afternoon. More importantly, our volunteers provide daily social contact essential to the emotional wellbeing of our clients by providing friendship, empathy, and compassion while out in the community completing their deliveries.
Who we are
Meals on Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1970 and funded by the Delaware Division of Aging since 1973. We were the first Meals on Wheels program in the state of Delaware delivering 16,609 meals to our homebound citizens in our first year alone. By the end of the 1970's, more than 20,000 meals per year were being distributed in Lewes and Rehoboth.
We currently have over 100 volunteers serving 300 clients in Lewes and Rehoboth communities. Our program grows 5% each year as we expand our support to new clients. Our continued growth is attributed to our extensive outreach efforts and the sustainability of our service delivery model.
