Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee has earned the prestigious 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America's largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.

Special thanks to our clients and volunteers who participated in the making of our new informational video about Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee!


The Meals On Wheels Association of America recently released its annual senior hunger report and sadly, Florida is still in the "top ten" in senior hunger rates. In the past five years, the rate increased from 1 in 9 seniors to 1 in 7 seniors who are living with hunger. Please help spread the word - we can make a difference!

Together, we can provide food for the hungry, and cheer for the homebound.


Meals on Wheels PLUS operates many programs including The Food Bank of Manatee, Grandma's Goodies, Senior Wheels, Adult Day Services, and Renaissance on 9th that is home to the 9th Street Bistro, the Senior Enrichment Center, and Turner Ballroom. We invite you to participate in our upcoming events, and thank you for your support!
