Welcome to Meals on Wheels on Rowan, Inc.
Meals on Wheels of Rowan, Inc. (MOW), a United Way member agency, is a community based, non-profit organization whose mission is: “To provide a meal and friendly visit to the homebound of Rowan County.”
MOW was established in May, 1976 when the need of several homebound citizens of Rowan County, unable to prepare meals for themselves, was noticed. To facilitate their needs, and allow them to remain at home, where they were most comfortable, MOW was formed.
Another significant part of the MOW program is the daily friendly face-to-face contact clients receive when the MOW volunteer deliver the meal to the client's home. The weekday meal delivery also serves as a "safety check" and alleviates isolation and loneliness and provides social interaction.
