March is designated as National Meals on Wheels Month. Show your support by volunteering to deliver meals, donating to our March for Meals campaign, or by encouraging a senior to try our program. Our agency depends on the help we receive from our community. Without you we would not be able to meet our mission of ending senior hunger in Cabarrus County.
March for Meals is an annual national campaign to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on a local level. Senior nutrition programs across the United States promote March for Meals in their local communities through public events, partnerships with local businesses, volunteer recruitment and fundraising initiatives.
The campaign takes place in the month of March because it was during this month in 1972 that the law was enacted that included senior meal programs in the Older Americans Act.
Traditionally held in October, our Sunday Soup Sampling is our one and only annual fundraiser to support the work that we do here in Cabarrus County. When you purchase a ticket, you also support our mission to provide a hot meal and a warm hello to the elderly homebound.
Join us for all you can eat soups from local restaurants and caterers in a beautiful setting. In addition to soups, a variety of breads and desserts are also available.
Sponsorships and opportunities for donations for a silent auction are available for this event. Email Kimberly Strong or call us at 704.932.3412 for more information.
Give the perfect gift by letting us send your Christmas/Holiday card(s) for you. For a contribution of $25.00 per card, Cabarrus Meals on Wheels will send your friends, family, or business associates a personalized card, acknowledging your gift made in their honor.
Twenty-five dollars feeds a frail, isolated, elderly person for one entire week. Your donation will help us continue to carry out our compassionate mission of providing a hot nutritious meal to the homebound.
