The mission of Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee, Inc. is to assist individuals to live independently by providing nutrition and caring supportive services. While initially founded in 1972 with the purpose of providing hot, nutritious meals to the elderly and disabled residents of Manatee County, Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee, Inc. became so much more. The organization has grown over the years in response to community needs and the "PLUS" was eventually added to the name as a way of representing the many other services offered. Think of Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee in terms of a gigantic umbrella. Underneath the umbrella are all the PLUS programs including: Home-Delivered Meals, The Food Bank of Manatee, Daybreak Adult Day Center, and Friendship Dining Centers. Each year, our services are positively impacting thousands of residents in Manatee County, meeting daily needs to help individuals and families thrive.
