Our Mission:

To assist individuals to live independently by providing nutrition and caring, supportive services. 

The “PLUS" is because we are so much more than meals!

While initially founded in 1972, with the purpose of providing hot, nutritious meals to the elderly and disabled residents of Manatee County, Meals on Wheels of Manatee, Inc. became so much more. The organization grew over the years in response to community needs, and the “PLUS” was eventually added to the name as a way of representing the many other services offered.

Think of Meals on Wheels PLUS in terms of a gigantic umbrella. Underneath the umbrella are all the PLUS programs including:

  • Home-delivered Meals
  • The Food Bank of Manatee
  • Daybreak Adult Day Center
  • Friendship Dining Centers
