Thank you for helping homebound neighbors in need!
You can make your donation securely online.*
Will you give the gift of health and independence?
By making a donation, you’re providing the daily nutrition that our homebound neighbors need to remain living independently in their own homes. Your support means that we will continue to deliver healthy meals without charge and without a waiting list to people like Louise, who has limited mobility and relies on us for most of his meals.
As the aging population increases, East Cooper Meals on Wheels is committed to meet the growing needs of future recipients, and your gift can make all the difference to your homebound neighbors, many of whom desire to “age in place.”
Your gift is extremely important because it provides resources that make an immediate impact. With projections for chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease rising sharply, we are learning much more about the direct connection between food and health. Through your support, we can expand our nutritional meal options to better meet the needs of future recipients.
Support our Breakfast Bag Program
We are always seeking non-perishable breakfast items for our recipients. Easy-open, low-preparation foods are welcomed. Unfortunately, we cannot accept home-prepared or food requiring refrigeration. We also aim for low sodium, low sugar, and low-fat foods to support the nutritional needs of our recipients.
Suggested items include:
- Low sugar/high fiber cereal
- Oatmeal, grits, cream of wheat
- Peanut butter
- Low sugar jelly
- Low sugar canned fruit
- Jiffy mix
- Sugar-free jello
- Single serve snack items (raisins, crackers, etc.)
- Instant coffee and tea
Donations to our Food Services area are accepted between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are located on the campus of Christ Church at Hwy 17N and Long Point Rd. After hours donations can be left in the designated food bins.
