Meals on Wheels of Chester County

A nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve a well-balanced, nutritious meal five days a week to homebound residents regardless of age or economic status.
We have 20 Meals on Wheels chapters that cover about 85% of the populated area of Chester County including a special consumer’s program called “Pony Express” that covers some distant rural areas. Meals are prepared at various sites across the county and are delivered by compassionate volunteers in their own vehicles. Our volunteers give our homebound neighbors more than just a meal – they provide the gift of independence and a sense of community to those who may otherwise feel isolated. If you, or someone you know, are homebound and unable to prepare nutritious meals, MOWCC is here to help. Call the main office, located in the West Chester Borough at: 610-430-8500
