Fairview Park Meals On Wheels is a non-profit, non-government funded community service that has served the community since 1976, preparing and delivering a variety of nutritious meals to those who find it difficult to purchase or prepare food.

In recognition of “National Meals on Wheels Month,” the organization is hoping to enhance public awareness of the program, recruit new volunteers, and increase donations…as well as the number of residents receiving meals.
