Bloomington Meals on Wheels has been serving our neighbors in the Bloomington area for 40 years. Founded in 1973, our program provides nutritious meals to homebound people who are unable to cook for themselves. We ensure that our clients receive two good meals a day delivered by a friendly visitor. Any person who lives in our Bloomington service area is eligible for Meals On Wheels. We have no age or economic restrictions.

Meals on Wheels Volunteer Satisfaction Survey


Executive Director Kathy Romy receives a check from Bloomingfoods Member Services Coordinator Catie Schamel. Meals on Wheels was the recipient of the Positive Change roundup for the month of September.

Bloomington Meals on Wheels is grateful to Bloomingfoodsand their members for this big-hearted donation from the Positive Change program.  Meals on Wheels could not carry out its mission without the generosity of civic-minded individuals and businesses like Bloomingfoods,” said Kathy Romy, Executive Director, Bloomington Meals on Wheels. “This donation will go directly to support our commitment to feed those in our own community who desperately need our services.”

Bloomingfoods’ shoppers continue to keep the donations rolling in! In September, shoppers donated $4,259.07 to Bloomington Meals on Wheels through the community-driven fundraising campaign, Positive Change.

Positive Change raises funds by giving shoppers the opportunity to round their purchase up to the nearest dollar, or donate more if they wish. Each month, Bloomingfoods has a new recipient organization, and 100% of the proceeds go directly to the organization.
