Meals-on-Wheels is a nationally known food delivery program which brings surplus food to the needy. The project’s origins date back to WWII in London after the city had been heavily bombed, leaving thousands of Londoners homeless and hungry. Meals-on-Wheels programs in America are typically organized by churches. The farm apprentice crew pictured above has just harvested 120 bundles of Siberian Kale that will be delivered to elderly shut-ins as part of a weekly food box delivered to their door.
We love contributing our time and talents to this humanitarian effort, but the real solution to hunger in America starts with growing healthy produce locally and making it affordable and easily available to those who live within walking distance (or a short drive) from the farm. That’s called Meals-Without-Wheels.
