Mission Statement: To assist individuals to live independently by providing nutrition and caring supportive services. You may know "meals on wheels," but Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee is much, much more. Through our services, we provide hope, healing, independence and friendship. In addition to the traditional home delivered meals to home bound or disabled seniors, we offer transportation, social activities, and enrichment opportunities. The most unique aspect of Meals on Wheels PLUS is that we operate The Food Bank of Manatee, serving babies, families, and individuals in need through our network of local 115 partner agencies. Through this program and all the others we offer, Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee furthers its vision of "individuals in Manatee County have access to programs that end hunger and promote independent living." The Board of Directors and staff are committed to meeting the needs of our community and working so that no child, family, or senior goes hungry.
