Our Mission


The mission of Haywood County Meals on Wheels is to provide nutritious meals, friendly visits, and safety checks that enable homebound seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity while remaining in their home. 


Haywood County Meals on Wheels has been serving the community since 1975.  Over time we have adapted and changed to sustain and improve the program, and we will continue to do so to for the betterment of those we serve.  We will:

  • Serve any qualifying community member who needs our services through grants, donations, fundraising, meal payment, contributions, and county support.
  • Maintain, train, and sustain happy and engaged volunteers.
  • Provide high quality, tasty, nutritious meals.
  • Provide effective communication to ALL who utilize our program - recipients, volunteers, grantors, donors, and community collaborators.
  • Provide an empathetic, effective, efficient, high quality program to ALL who experience our services.

These goals are key to the effectiveness and success of our program.  With your help, in combination with our dedicated team of volunteers, we will be able to attain and sustain these goals.
