Our History

helping those in need

Independence Meals on Wheels is a community based program. It began in 1974, with the Church Women United of Independence being aware of the great need for the Independence to have a service available that would meet the nutritional needs of individuals who were homebound, handicapped, elderly, those convalescing from a hospital stay and other needy individuals.

They began meeting in July 1975 with a steering committee made up of community leaders, Ministerial Alliance and other concerned citizens to implement a plan. The program was incorporated and became a Not-For- Profit Corporation on September 23, 1975, with its office located in the Trinity Episcopal Church at 409 N Liberty.

Today the Independence Meals on Wheels is still located in the Trinity Episcopal Church. The program continues to be a vital part in supplying a nutritional meal to those in need,  using dedicated volunteer drivers to deliver meals through out the City of Independence and the Sugar Creek area.
