About Us

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Meals on Wheels program has served the community for over 40 years. We provide a hot, balanced meal and personal visit Monday through Friday to 160-180 recipients in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and southern Orange County who do not have access to, or the ability to prepare, a healthy meal due to age, illness, disability or convalescence in order to improve their health, reduce their isolation and help them maintain independent living. Hot meals are prepared by K&W Cafeteria and supplemented with fruit, milk, and desserts made by a “Baking Brigade” of volunteers.

Chapel Hill - Carrboro Meals on Wheels is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization.
