Your support means the world to us. Without your commitment, we can’t continue to be of service. You’re an important part of our community and we thank you!
Our volunteers keep our kitchen humming and our wheels rolling! Help us prepare fresh meals in our Takoma Park kitchen or get our deliveries to those who need them most.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, Meals on Wheels of Takoma Park/Silver Spring is committed to the health of our community.
We’re staying up-to-date on the evolving situation. We’re proud that 100% of our staff and at least 98% of our volunteers are fully vaccinated. There have been no COVID-19 cases associated with transmission at our kitchen or offices as of July 2021. We implemented adjustments in delivery practices on day one, including maintaining a 6’ distance between our clients and our volunteer deliverers, to protect both our volunteers and clients. We continue to be safe and vigilant in maintaining our already-hygienic kitchen practices. We wash hands a lot, and we wear our masks according to (or stricter than) national and local guidelines.
We’ve also created a small Coronavirus Task Force, which includes board members, staff, community members and national experts, to discuss updates and advise policy decisions for our program.
We welcome new volunteers, new clients, and donations to support our ability to remain open during this time. If you are interested, please give us a call at 301-434-1922.
