Our Mission

Meals on Wheels Shaker (MOW) is an independent community service agency whose dedicated volunteers deliver affordable, nutritious meals of superior quality to residents of Shaker Heights, Beachwood and University Heights.  This service assists our subscribers in maintaining their health and well-being. We are the key to independent living!

Since 1982, Meals on Wheels Shaker has been delivering nutritious meals to residents in the communities of Shaker Heights, (including Shaker Square), Beachwood and University Heights, Ohio.

Meals on Wheels Shaker is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization (501c3) funded through nominal meal fees and charitable contributions generated from private donors, fundraising events  and corporate sponsorship.  We receive no government funding.

Currently, there are about 50 volunteers who deliver nearly 7,500 meals annually.

These same volunteers serve as a social link for many of our clients that are isolated from the outside world due to age, disability or limited mobility.  Many of our volunteers have been serving our community for over 20 years; faithfully supporting those needing daily meals.

Our goal is simple:  To be around another 35 years serving our communities with daily meal service. We exist solely on the generosity of our donors. Thank you for so many wonderful years of service.
