Chagrin Falls Meals-On-Wheels is making a difference in our community.
CHAGRIN FALLS MEALS-ON-WHEELS is a local non-profit 501(c)(3), volunteer-staffed, home delivery meal service. Our service provides nutritionally balanced meals at a very reasonable price to recipients in eastern Cuyahoga and western Geauga counties, i.e. Auburn, Bainbridge, Bentleyville, Chagrin Falls, Newbury, Russell, and South Russell.
Meal service is available to all regardless of income and we receive no government subsidy for the program.

With caring volunteers delivering the meals, recipients are able to continue independent living in their own homes. Nutritious meals are planned and prepared by a professional chef (the only paid staff person) and a team of kitchen volunteers Monday through Friday. A payment of $6.00 per day is requested but no one is turned away for lack of ability to pay.
An annual fundraising letter is sent to the community requesting donations. These donations keep us from being in a monthly deficit and allow us to maintain our $6.00 per day charge to recipients.
- To provide nutrition, independence and caring to recipients in the Chagrin Valley.
- To offer nutritious meals at a reasonable cost through the coordinated efforts of the cook and board of directors.
- To solicit both financial and volunteer support from the community to sustain our meal service program.
- To recognize and appreciate the dedication of volunteers who contribute time and talent in serving this organization.
