GET A MEAL
Our goal at Meals On Wheels of Sarasota, Inc. is to nourish and enrich our clients' lives through the services we provide. Our Home-Delivered Meals program helps MOW clients maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain living independently by providing nutritious meals, a daily safety check, and friendly interaction.
Meals on Wheels of Sarasota, Inc. delivers a nutritious meal Monday through Saturday to more than 500 Sarasota County residents daily who cannot prepare their own food. MOW is not a program solely focused on low-income residents; rather, we serve the physically/mentally disadvantaged, people recuperating from an injury, and all those in need who are unable to prepare and shop for themselves.
MOW Sarasota offers a seasonal menu daily to our clients. Our menu is focused on preparing a heart healthy nutritional meal - one that meets Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) standards and tastes great. We provide a lower sodium, lower fat, lower sugar fare for all our clients which will satisfy the many age groups, genders and sizes of our clients with different cultural palates.
MEALS ON THE MOVE - East of I75
We have increased our capacity thanks to generous donors and a grant from the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation and the Linnie E. Dalbeck Memorial Foundation. We have updated our kitchen and added new meal packaging equipment allowing us to prepare as many 1,000 meals simultaneously. We need volunteers and help establishing a satellite location east of the interstate as well as finding clients in need of healthy meals - regardless of age or ability to pay.
Our clients are typically isolated, and live with physical or mental disabilities, whether temporary or permanent. If you can help identify people who may be struggling with hunger and isolation, please contact us, or have them contact us. Call 941-366-6693 or fill out the form to have meals delivered.
Our service area is from University Parkway to Blackburn Point Road, and from I-75 all the way to Siesta Key, Lido Key and Longboat Key. This area is divided into 32 routes and covers 600 square miles.
We ask our clients for a $50 service fee upon enrollment. We ask for a donation of $6 per meal, though our philosophy is to serve all in need regardless of ability to pay.
