About Us

Who are we?

The Independence Meals on Wheels, Inc. (MOW) The program became a Not For Profit in 1975. The MOW office is located in the Trinity Episcopal Church at 409 N. Liberty Avenue, Independence, Mo. Its  mission remains true the original commitment to provide nutritious hot meals 5-days a week to those who live within the City of Independence and Sugar Creek area; who are elderly, homebound and physically handicapped or with limited ability to prepare meals. Subsidy is available for those whose income falls below the 150% poverty level. Meals can be purchased at a minimal cost. Extra meals can be purchased for evening and weekend meals. Individuals in the community with a desire to give of their time for volunteer service deliver the meals Monday through Friday between 10:45am and 12:00pm.  Many recipients have limited access to outside contact. Having contact with another person is beneficial to both parties; the recipients have the comfort in knowing that someone will be looking in on them each day and the drivers feel a sense of reward for their efforts.
