What is MOW? 

 

 

It stands for the Meals on Wheels program which provides meals to home-bound seniors under 60 and their spouses or dependent, disabled adult children.  The program is aimed at promoting better health among the home-bound and older segment of the population.  MOW provides both nutrition and help to keep the individual in their own home, reducing the chance of institutionalization.  The program also provides social contact through meal delivery volunteers to a person who may otherwise be home-bound and isolated.
