As of today, March 11th, 2020, Meals on Wheels of Mercer County continues to deliver meals daily as usual. However, we are not able to accommodate any new participants at this time. All our efforts are going toward providing meals and consistency to those currently on our program. We wish to thank our volunteers who continue to show up daily to help, and our partners Rider University and Gourmet Dining for their timeless efforts to ensure our homebound are fed. Should we develop an urgent need for delivery volunteers, we will use this page to put out a call! In the meantime if you do find yourself with time on your hands, or have college students home with nothing to do, please call our offices to volunteer. 609-695-3483. We could always use extra hands!!! Thank you!!!!
