Our Services

Meals on Wheels Rowan provides a nutritious meal delivered by volunteers who offer a friendly greeting and provide an informal safety check to homebound seniors and disabled individuals in our community.  Our home-delivered meal service provides the support and peace of mind to enable them to safely age in the place of their choosing.
