A Legacy of Caring Since 1973
 

History of Meals on Wheels in Pullman


Highlights since 1973

* Reached high of 30 meals a day delivered in the early 1990’s.  Currently anywhere from 10 - 20 meals are delivered daily.

* In 2015, 17 Pullman churches and businesses delivered 4,138 meals, contributing 697 hours of service.                          

* Have only missed 2 days of delivery in 40 years: the day after Mt. St. Helens erupted (1980), and the particularly difficult snow day in 2011 when the plows couldn’t keep up with the snowfall


Deep thanks to the listed churches and groups who have provided volunteers 365 days a year for the past 40 years.  Their consistent support has been vital to the continued success of this program in reaching home-bound seniors needing nutritional assistance.
