Eastside Meals on Wheels provides nutritious hot meals to isolated neighbors in Northeast and Southeast Minneapolis and St. Anthony Village. These hot meals ensure the safety and nutrition of clients who might otherwise struggle to get out to shop and cook complete meals themselves. Generous community volunteers deliver between 120-160 meals per day, with an average of 250 volunteer drivers per month – that’s more than 28,000 meals delivered to their neighbors each year.
Serving the community since 1973, Eastside Meals on Wheels ensures that isolated neighbors enjoy at least one healthy meal per day. Isolated neighbors, especially seniors, are healthier and remain independent longer with home delivered meals. Meals on Wheels recipients report fewer hospital visits and remain in their own homes much longer than isolated individuals who do not receive meals. Eastside Meals on Wheels supports and serves people in the community on low- or fixed-incomes.
