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.
In 2012 MOW delivered 27,336 meals to 299 clients and currently has 83 volunteers. New volunteers are always needed to help drive or deliver meals to current Evansville homebound residents.
