Our Mission

We are a community service designed to prepare and deliver meals to those who find it difficult to purchase or prepare food. We have been proudly serving the community since 1976. This organization makes no distinction among its recipients or volunteers in terms of age, race, sex, and religion. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, relying on private donations, with no government subsidies.

About Us

Rocky River Meals on Wheels, a division of Westshore Meals on Wheels, has been serving the community of Rocky River since 1976. Since we receive no government funding, we operate on what our recipients pay for their meals and donations. Our many volunteers donate their time working in the kitchen to prepare the meals or to deliver them to our recipients.

We prepare and deliver about 300 meals per week. These meals are prepared fresh every day in our kitchen and include produce donations from the Rocky River community garden and Magnificat High School. We furnish blizzard packs for days when we are unable to deliver due to weather conditions. Our meals include homemade baked goods, specialty breads, pastries, and soups during the winter months as well as special holiday meals.

Although our main focus is to provide meals to our recipients, there are other benefits as well. The most important is the daily contact from our volunteers, which for some may be the only person they see during the day. A friendly, familiar face is always welcome and can brighten someone's day.
