This was the largest community project the Auxiliary had undertaken at any time outside of war efforts. With Mrs. Woodward’s guidance, the Auxiliary operated all aspects of the growing program for seven years. In 1975, additional community involvement allowed Meals on Wheels to become its own entity.
In 1994 the VMA partnered with Kenny Kent to provide a new van for meal delivery and has over the years contributed generously to the Meals on Wheels program.
Today Meals on Wheels operates five routes, delivering between 120-150 meals each day. New volunteers are always needed to help drive or deliver meals to current Evansville homebound residents allowing them to live independently for a longer period of time.
