By preparing and delivering hot, nutritious and affordable meals to the homebound in the Morgantown area, we help people stay in their homes during periods of disability.
The Morgantown Area Meals On Wheels program is an independent, community based nutrition program affiliated with the national Meals on Wheels Association of America but is a separate organization from the Senior Monongalians food delivery program). The local program is funded by contributions from local foundations, organizations, individuals and the coal severence tax from the Monongalia County Commission.
The Morgantown Area Meals On Wheels program has three distribution centers: Star City Kitchen, Goshen Baptist Church, and Rock Forge Presbyterian Church. The hot meals are delivered within a 10-mile radius of each center. Meals are delivered by volunteers Monday - Friday year round, except on specified holidays (New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas), or community-declared "snow days". As a general rule, if Monongalia County schools are closed due to snow or other weather emergencies, meals will not be delivered. Listen to the radio, WVAQ and WAJR, for information about school closings due to weather related problems and MOW deliveries.
All meals are planned by a licensed dietitian and prepared by certified cooks at the Star City Kitchen. Meals are delivered between 10 AM and Noon by volunteer drivers. Clients receive either a "general" meal or a "diabetic" meal. In some cases special diets can be accommodated, but the dietitian has final approval for any special meals served. Clients are charged for their meals based on their financial circumstances. There are no age or income limits for receiving meals.
A new program of delivering shelf-stable meals for the weekend is being tried. These meals require little or no cooking and are delivered on Thursday or Friday depending on the customer's Monday thru Friday delivery schedule.
