Meals on Wheels Program
The Meals on Wheels Program (MOW) serves anyone 60 years or older who cannot leave their home without assistance and who is unable to prepare meals themselves.
We deliver anywhere in Island County both on Whidbey and Camano Island right to your door. Deliveries are made every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 11 am and 1pm (except for holidays and severe weather days). Hot and frozen meals are provided in biodegradable trays which can be heated in a microwave or oven.
Our Meals on Wheels volunteers check on the safety of homebound individuals with each delivery and alert our offices if further assistance is needed.

I’m “Caroline.” I have had a very full life helping others. First, I was in the Peace Corps in the 1960’s, then taught adults to read, and aided in numerous disaster areas through my church’s relief program. I never earned much money but felt rich through what I did. I’m 82 now, have no pension, and live on social security. I live alone and have no family. I used to have to choose between paying bills and buying food. Then, the neighbor who brings my mail saw my barren cupboards when she stayed for tea. That day she signed me up to receive Meals on Wheels. She donates to the program to cover my meals. Now I eat every day. The volunteer delivery drivers have become my friends. They watch over me. Now my money can cover the heating bill. I am warm and fed, for the first time in a very long time.
