Meals on Wheels of Asheville & Buncombe County

WHAT THEY DO: We have a heart for seniors! Each weekday, our cadre of volunteers delivers hot, nutritious meals and friendly visits to nearly 500 homebound seniors across Buncombe County. We serve as a safety net for vulnerable seniors by helping alleviate three of the biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence. Research proves that when seniors have the right support, they gain greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays and live longer. It all starts with a meal!


  • All donations up to $20,000 will be matched by Wiley Crook, former meal delivery volunteer.
Without Meals on Wheels, I would not eat. Meals on Wheels truly is my family. I’ve outlived everyone else, and you all are my only visitors.
—Abe, a senior in his early 90s who lives alone and is served by Meals on Wheels
