Description of project

Who we are…

Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation founded in 1972 by a group of women from Presbyterian Churches around Albuquerque. We began with 20 clients and 40 volunteers. Today we serve approximately 500 clients and have over 400 volunteers. We delivered 9,400 meals in 1972. Today we are delivering over 130,000 meals a year. Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque provides nutritious meals and crucial social contact each day. Not only do we provide friendship and compassion but we also check the well being of those we serve.

What we do…

Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque is the only home delivered meal program in our area preparing special diets. We prepare these special diets for a variety of needs, including diabetes, renal failure, heart issues, chewing and swallowing problems, etc. We receive no federal or state funding.

Through grants, donations, and the support of the community, we started the Low Income Food & Enrichment Program (L.I.F.E.). This program is for those meeting the federal government's defined poverty level and who require a special diet due to health issues.

Our program is currently the only one of its kind in the Albuquerque metro area. We have 80 people on our waitlist - help us end the wait!
