A CAMPAIGN FOR MEALS ON

WHEELS OF METRO TULSA

Your generous support for Delivering Hope—to be completed in three phases—will allow us to serve even more elderly and disabled homebound neighbors with nutritious meals, wellness checks, and caring contact—now and for years to come.

The Future Starts Here

Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa has served the community—from our current facility—for nearly 38 years. Today, this location is no longer large enough to meet the needs of our clients, volunteers, and staff. It is difficult to access, and not visible to the public. 

Our new location at 21st and Broken Arrow Parkway will immediately provide much-needed space, strengthen our distribution network, help us raise awareness, and make it possible to recruit, train, and deploy thousands of volunteers properly. 

An expansion and renovation of this former Borders book store will: 

  • Attract additional volunteers and supporters to our welcoming facility and life-sustaining mission. 
     

  • Allow MOW to increase our meal delivery capacity from 450,000 delivered meals per year to a goal of more than one million per year. 
     

  • Build and enlarge our indoor cold and dry storage. 
     

  • Configure the building to house MOW’s signature programs and develop new innovative and cutting-edge programs- like the new Care Navigation model which includes safe-at-home programs. 
     

  • Increase the size and capability of professional staff to provide more wrap-around services, 
     

  • Create a volunteer training and deployment center, community action center, community gardens, and community collaboration space.
