We reserve 83 spaces for individuals without the resources to pay for their meals. All participants are asked to contribute toward the cost of their meals as they are able, based on a sliding scale. Meals on Wheels Rowan depends on financial contributions from individual donors, foundation grants, church partners, businesses, and special fundraising activities to help pay for 80% of the total meal program cost each year. Your generosity is vital to our mission. Direct monetary donations, various forms of planned giving, and in-kind gifts of goods and services are just a few ways you can help support home-delivered meals for seniors in Rowan County.
We will gratefully accept any financial contribution you choose to make.

AniMEALS Pet Food Program
Our AniMEALS program helps provide pet food and basic vet care for our meal recipients' pet companions. Pets provide comfort and comapnionship to seniors who live alone or are socially isolated. It is often difficult for seniors to grocery shop or get heavy bags or cans of pet food into their homes. Thanks to pet-loving donors, we can provide pet food and vouchers for rabies vaccinations, wellness checks, and grooming when needed.
You may donate to our AniMEALS program by clicking the DONATE button below
Checks may be made out to Meals on Wheels Rowan. Please note "Pets" on the memo line of your check.
