March 16th: MOWD Coronavirus Update

3-16-2020 COVID-19 Update


Dear Meals on Wheels Durham stakeholders,


We hope that you are doing well. As we communicated last week, our utmost concern is for our senior clients and the volunteers and staff members that serve them.


After much deliberation, we have decided that Meals on Wheels Durham will not deliver meals from Monday, March 23rd – Friday, April 3rd.


This week, March 16th-March 20th we will still be delivering meals Monday-Friday on our regular schedule. Each client will receive meals for the next two weeks by Friday, March 20th. During the two weeks of non-delivery, clients will still be contacted multiple times a week via phone for check-ins. We will begin once a week delivery to all of our clients on Monday, April 6th. Each client will receive five meals, and our weekend meal clients will receive their weekend meals during those deliveries.


We will continuously revisit and reevaluate our policies as the situation around COVID-19 evolves. When we have an update, we will send an email to all volunteers. All updates will also be posted on and all social media channels. If you would like to help during this time, please consider making a donation at and annotate that it is for COVID-19.


Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this challenge.
