SEE how one inspiring Meals on Wheels volunteer is working to Share Kindness

Services for the Homebound of Franklin County
Over 1.1 million meals served!

Each weekday* we prepare and deliver more than 100 hot, nutritious noon-time meals to homebound convalescent, elderly, and handicapped residents of Chambersburg and many of the surrounding communities (see map). We place each meal in a special three-part tray, top-sealed with plastic, so the client can eat the meal right away or reheat it later if desired.

And we deliver more than meals. For many of our clients, the Meals on Wheels volunteer's arrival with a friendly smile, a kind word, and a good hot meal is the high point of a lonely day. There is always time for a few minutes of conversation and perhaps a simple chore like bringing in the mail or emptying the trash.

Our paid staff of three (Client Administrator, Head Cook, and Operations Assistant), our 200+ volunteers, and our Board of Directors are dedicated to providing high quality meals at a reasonable cost to folks who need them in our area. More volunteers and cash donations are always needed. If you need to have meals delivered or know of someone who does, or if you want to help meet the need, please check out the other pages of this site.

Fund Donation will
Provide Free Meals

A local farmer, Emory Etter, has won the right to direct a $2500 donation from the Monsanto Fund's "Amerca's Farmers Grow Communities" program to a local nonprofit of his choice. He chose Chambersburg Meals on Wheels. The money will be used to provide free meals for clients during Christmas week, 2017.
