penickvillageOur hot meals are prepared daily by dedicated staff in the kitchens at Penick Village Retirement Community in Southern Pines.

Our Meals provide 1/3 of the recommended daily allowance and even accommodate for specialized nutritional requirements like diabetic or low sodium meals.
In addition to receiving a hot meal, our recipients also enjoy some fellowship with our caring Volunteers. Our daily visits help give the families & friends of our recipients peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are safe and sound for another day.

Learn how to receive our Meals on Wheels

Meals On Wheels of the Sandhills, Inc. was started in 1974 by Ida Baker Scott for five of her friends who needed a hot, nourishing meal. This year our Volunteers will deliver approximately 24,000 meals.

Today, we have more than 100 dedicated Volunteers who donate their time and use of their vehicles to deliver an average of 100 meals each weekday, 260 days a year to those in need. Each month our lunch-time meals are delivered (Monday through Friday, including weekday holidays) to the homebound in the towns of Aberdeen, Pinebluff, Pinehurst and Southern Pines.

We have no financial or age restrictions, and we receive no government funding. Meals On Wheels is a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization depending entirely on private monetary help to exist.

We are a non-profit organization; however, the cost for each meal is $3.25. Payments can be made weekly ($16.25/ per week/per meal) or monthly ($65/per month/per person Monday – Friday) and will be collected by the Volunteer on Fridays or, preferably, can be mailed at the beginning of each month to our office (see address below). Checks made payable to MEALS ON WHEELS OF THE SANDHILLS. Paying monthly is the most beneficial as it is based on 20 days and there is usually 21 or 22 weekdays in a month.
