In collaboration with Rowan Helping Ministries, we will deliver USDA Food Boxes to Rowan Helping Ministries clients without transportation or ability to pick up their USDA Food Boxes. 


As the staff from Rowan Helping Ministries and Meals on Wheels talked about the changes and challenges brought by the pandemic, they discovered a way to collaborate.  Meals on Wheels provides a courier and vehicle to deliver USDA Food Boxes to those Rowan Helping Ministries clients who can not pick up their food boxes. 


COVID-19 Grant funding helped get the USDA food box delivery program underway. Since then, grants to Rowan Helping Ministries and to Meals on Wheels fund the program.
