Meals on Wheels celebrates 40 years of service to the Bloomington community
Bloomington Meals on Wheels (MOW), originally founded in 1973 by the Local Council of Women, has been providing two nutritious meals a day to the elderly, disabled, and homebound for almost 40 years. Meals on Wheels serves those within the Bloomington city limits who are recovering from an accident or illness, are temporarily or permanently disabled, or are simply unable to prepare food independently. The fee-for-service program offers a sack lunch and a hot meal at a minimal cost, based on a physician’s diet order for each client. It is the only agency in town that provides diabetic home-delivered meals. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify. read more…..
