Are you a homebound neighbor? Do you live in Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Adelphi, Langley Park, or Chillum? If so, it would be our honor to serve you or a loved one.
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 100% of our volunteers are fully vaccinated. There have been zero COVID-19 cases associated with transmission at our kitchen or offices as of March 2022. Our staff and all volunteers are required to be 100% up-to-date with vaccinations and available boosters. 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 mask according to 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.
Our organization more than doubled during the pandemic and we continue to see a heightened level of need every day. We welcome new volunteers, new clients, and donations to support our ability to remain open during this time. Please give us a call at 301-434-1922.

Every year, we participate in the Subaru Share The Love Event. If you’re interested in purchasing or leasing a new car, consider a Subaru — and consider purchasing between mid-November and the end of the year. During those six weeks each year, you can select Meals on Wheels as a charity recipient and our program will receive a donation from Subaru. Subaru’s Share the Love Event has helped deliver more than 2.5 million meals to America’s seniors and thousands here in Takoma Park and Silver Spring alone.
