Federated Church provides space for Chagrin Falls Meals on Wheels, Inc. Monday through Friday mornings in the Family Life Center commercial kitchen.
Chagrin Falls Meals-On-Wheels, Inc. is a local non-profit, volunteer-staffed home delivered meal service. They receive no government subsidy and their program is available to all regardless of income. This service provides nutritionally balanced meals to recipients in eastern Cuyahoga and southwestern Geauga counties.
Nourishing meals are delivered to elderly and disabled persons who are unable to provide meals for themselves. Participants of any age must be homebound due to illness or physical limitations.
A volunteer driver plus a rider deliver each meal to a recipient while checking the safety and well-being of the recipient as well as the condition of the home. With caring volunteers delivering the meals, recipients are able to continue independent living in their own homes. Nutritious meals are planned and prepared by a professional cook (the only paid staff person) and a team of kitchen volunteers Monday through Friday.
Payment is requested but no one is turned away for lack of ability to pay. An annual fundraising letter is sent to the community requesting donations. These donations keep MOW from being in a monthly deficit and allows them to maintain a reasonable per diem charge to recipients.
- To provide nutrition, independence and caring to recipients in the Chagrin Valley.
- To offer nutritious meals at a reasonable cost through the coordinated efforts of the cook and board of directors.
- To solicit both financial and volunteer support from the community to sustain our meal service program.
