Do You Have a Passion for the Seniors in Our Community?

Do you have a passion for the seniors in our community and want to serve with a team of dedicated individuals across the county to end senior hunger, one meal at a time? Serve on our board and join our non-profit organization that has a history of meeting the nutritional needs of home-bound and disables adults who are unable to prepare meals for themselves and have no one to prepare one hot meal a day for them.

Cabarrus Meals on Wheels is a non-profit and a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization that provides well-balanced, nutritious meals to seniors and individuals with disabilities 5 days a week in Cabarrus County. Cabarrus Meals on Wheels deliveries provide the support and peace of mind that help seniors remain independent in their homes longer, delaying or avoiding alternative living arrangements or nursing care.
