Why Meals on Wheels Durham
Meals on Wheels Durham delivers daily meals to homebound seniors in need in Durham County—and has done so for over 45 years. Our operations have grown considerably from our first 12 clients in 1975, and we remain diligent to meet the needs of our growing senior population. With the help from generous supporters, we continue to curb the rise in hunger and social isolation experienced by seniors.


Meals on Wheels Durham provides so much more than a meal. With cadres of compassionate volunteers, staff, and supporters, we work diligently to show local seniors they're appreciated, valued, and remembered. Our team effort is an example of what wonderful things can happen when a community invested in caring for its own mobilizes for good.
