North Minneapolis Meals on Wheels is dedicated to their mission of delivering nourishing meals to homebound North Minneapolis residents who are at risk nutritionally and unable to prepare their own meals.
Our vision is to enhance the quality of life through the reduction of hunger and isolation for North Minneapolis homebound residents.
In 1971, a North-Minneapolis Meals on Wheels program started by Northside Adult Services, a decentralized office of the Hennepin County Welfare Department, became the second program in the metro area. The program was incorporated 1981 and currently operates as North Minneapolis Meals on Wheels (NMMOW). In 2007, NMMOW delivered over 33,000 meals to home-bound seniors and disabled North Minneapolis residents.
