In Lynchburg, we operate independently of other organizations, but we have a clear understanding of the value of collaborating with our partner services and reducing duplication of service wherever possible. We constantly strive to streamline processes for our staff and for our recipients while maintaining proper documentation and accountability.

Because we do not accept any state or federal funding, we are not bound by much of the bureaucracy that accompanies those monies. If they meet our other criteria, we serve any adult, regardless of age or income for either an extended or short period of time. This program serves people who need prepared meals due to permanent or temporary disabilities.

In addition, the Meals on Wheels delivery also provides a reassuring “check-in” to those who live alone. Any unanswered delivery is reported and investigated. Changes in a client’s health or needs are followed up on by Meals on Wheels staff. If appropriate, referrals to family, physician, or community service organizations are made.
