Meals On Wheels of Sarasota delivers nutritious meals and friendship to individuals who are unable to plan, shop, or prepare meals for themselves. When other agencies say “we can’t do more to help,” Meals On Wheels of Sarasota says YES.
We say YES to veterans. YES to pregnant women and new moms. YES to the mentally impaired, seniors and families in need throughout our community. We say YES, we will provide you with healthy meals, boxes of essential supplies, fresh fruits and vegetables, and more. Even in the grip of a pandemic, we find a way to make a difference… because of you.
We’ve never seen a need like this…
