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 due to illness, injury or disability. We ensure that our clients receive two good meals a day delivered by a friendly visitor.
