About Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County

We enhance the wellness and independence of adults, who are primarily homebound, by providing nutritious meals and supportive services. About Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County  Created by a grassroots group of concerned citizens who responded to the news that an elderly couple living in Allentown was starving in their own home, Meals on Wheels has been providing home delivered meals and a social visit to seniors and adults with disabilities living in Lehigh County since 1971.  

Today we are serving 450 of our homebound neighbors on 33 delivery routes and providing grocery shopping services to over 100 clients. 95% of our clients cannot afford the full cost for our program. We never want anyone in our community to have to choose between eating and other basic necessities like rent and medicine.  They do not have to make this choice because of the generosity of our community members who help us to raise more than $600,000.
