March for Meals

Thank You for Your Partnership in Supporting Meals on Wheels . . .


March for Meals 2018 was a great success! Together we raised over $90,000 for the Missoula County Meals on Wheels (MOW) program! That equates to roughly 13,000 meals and safety checks for homebound older adults! 

We couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who participated this year, whether as a donor, fundraiser, or community-minded sponsor. Your strong support for Meals on Wheels makes a significant impact in our community, and helps ensure that Meals on Wheels can be depended upon by your older neighbors every day. Because of the generosity of people like you, Missoula County is safer, more connected, and more caring.

  • "Thank you so much . . . just having someone come to my door gives me something to look forward to."
