W E D N E S D A Y S A R E A N I M E A L S D A Y S !

Every Wednesday a weekly supply of pet food is delivered to our pet-owning clients to help them maintain important companionship.

Did you know that loneliness has been proven to be as dangerous as smoking 15 ci******es per day? Pets are important contributors of good health, but we know these important family members will be the recipients of our delicious "people meals" if we do not help clients access both pet and people food.

Unfortunately we have a waiting list for our wonderful services - donations have not kept pace with the enormous need. Please help us END THE WAIT for people and pets by making a donation today at https://mealsonwheelsnei.org/donate

$100,000 a month.

With 90% of clients receiving meal subsidies, MWNEI needs $7 in donations for every meal that leaves our doors. That equates to $100,000 needed in donations each month. Last year a waiting list began because of the overwhelming number of requests for great meals for our low income elders. Please consider helping to END THE WAIT by making a donation today!

Thank you to all who came out to today’s mural unveiling that features four of our founders: Dolores Holmes, Hecky Powell, Sister Mary Alfreda Brach, and Lillian, Fitzsimmons. 

Many stories about the founders were shared and muralist Damon Lamar Reed’s beautiful mural was admired. Special guest Delores Holmes spoke as did Hecky Powell’s wife Cheryl, Alderman Bobby Burns, St Francis Hospital staff, founders’ family members, friends and neighbors.
MWNEI served sample sized tastings of a few menu items: flaked fish pitas, loaded pasta salad and shrimp topped pasta salad.

Completion of this project is a tremendous relief for which we owe oodles of thanks to Lea Pinsky of Art Encounters. The finished product is so much more than we could have imagined. Thank you Damen!

More pictures soon!

TONIGHT!

Join us for our 2024 Gala at Double Clutch Brewery in at 6:00p! We are looking to raise $130,000 to continue serving the elderly and homebound -- from to the border!

Since opening our kitchen in June of 2020, MNWEI has shattered all expectations for meal production. We are serving more homebound and elderly than ever before. And that’s important, because the need is growing every day.

“Food quality is always a primary criterion as we continue to introduce menu items,” says MWNEI Food Service Director Sam Landman. “These new additions are authentic items made by our own Jesus Morales and Jesus Zapata. These are the flavors Mom used to make.”
