History

Our History

Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches, Inc. was incorporated in 2010 by our founder, Charles B. Ring, III. Charlie saw the unmet needs of
the homebound in our community and began MOWPB as part of the
solution to address those needs. Deliveries began in February of 2011,
and in that first year we delivered approximately 4,000 meals with the
help of 15 volunteers. Fast forward just 5 years and in 2016 our 135
volunteers will bring over 33,000 freshly cooked meals to homebound
seniors and disabled adults in our community.

 

 


 

What we do

Our meals are delivered 5 days a week, and are providing
nourishment for the soul as well as the body. The three part
program ensures that, in addition to a warm smile, our clients
receive a nutritious meal, a well-being check and follow-up with
emergency contacts if needed. This provides an essential human
connection which is too often lost when seniors or disabled adults live alone.

 


 

Who we are

As a public 501© (3) non-profit organization, we have
provided services to those in need in our community
without one dollar of federal, state or local government
support. Our program is entirely supported by the generous
contributions of our community including foundation grants, and
donations from individuals, churches, corporations and local businesses.
