WeCAN’s Carolyn Dillon coordinates the Meals on Wheels Program. Every day numerous volunteers deliver nutritious meals to homebound residents. The Meals on Wheels Program enables seniors and persons with disabilities to stay in their own homes, avoiding costly nursing home placements.
WeCAN delivered the first Meals on Wheels in the Mound area in 1974. Our service area is slightly smaller than the general WeCAN service area. We deliver to St. Bonifacius, Mound, Spring Park, Minnetonka Beach, Minnetrista, Maple Plain and parts of Tonka Bay, Orono, Independance and Loretto.
Meals on Wheels is a lifeline to hundreds of seniors, homebound and disabled citizens here in our community. Without Meals on Wheels, many would not have the proper nutrition to maintain good health.
Volunteer drivers deliver more than just meals each week day. For many homebound individuals, it is a vital daily check and for some recipients the daily volunteer visit is the only contact they have with the outside world. Meals on Wheels helps to keep clients in their homes and living independently for as long as possible.
