Welcome To Hillcrest Meals-on-Wheels

We are a service designed to meet the nutritional needs of homebound, disabled and elderly residents, who are unable to shop or prepare meals. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday between 11:00 and noon by volunteers. Hillcrest Meals-on-Wheels offers a dietitian-approved hot meal plan for a minimal fee. These delicious meals are prepared through the new catering division of the Greater Cleveland FoodBank. This innovative partnership allows Hillcrest Meals-on-Wheels to keep the cost to our clients as low as possible. We can accommodate a basic low sodium diet. Please ask for further information on any specialized dietary needs.

Adopt A Route

Adopt-A-Route was created for Hillcrest area corporations, churches, synagogues, and civic organizations because of an expressed interest in serving their communities. As the population of clients needing our service increases, our need for volunteers continues to grow. Help us keep this vital community service working in your neighborhood and become an Adopt-A-Route partner. We ask that your group commits to two people one day a week, for approximately one hour, to deliver meals to our clients in the Hillcrest area.

The Joy of Volunteering

Established in 1983, Hillcrest Meals on Wheels currently delivers more than 22,000 meals a year in the Hillcrest Communities. Volunteers take a special interest in our clients' welfare. They say delivering meals requires so little time and gives so much comfort to those who depend on this service.

"As a volunteer, I find it very rewarding to see the impact our service has on our clients. As a Board Member, I see how important and special our volunteers are."
- Esther White, Board Member and Volunteer since 1988.
