After seeing a Meals on Wheels program in action while on vacation in Texas, Carolyn and Clark Kellum and a group of interested citizens and hospital staff formed a committee to initiate a system of providing regular, nutritional meals to people in their homes. On May 7, 1973 services began with ten recipients on three routes.
Today Meals on Wheels of Hendricks County continues to provide regular, nutrtional meals to clients across Hendricks County. Last year we provided over 24,000 hot meals. In addition to providing this service we provide much more. Our volunteer drivers serve as a wellness check and human connection. We also provide free pet food, birthday bags, connection calls and more.
