Events

A great way to help us in providing quality nutrition services to seniors is to attend our yearly events! Each spring, we host our More Than  A Meal luncheon. This past year, it was virtual, but we hope to host in person soon! This is a time for the community to come together and enjoy a free meal while learning more about Meals on Wheels Western Michigan. In the fall, we host our Chef’s Specialty event where we honor a valued member of our community and feature an up and coming local chef. 

For more information, please contact our Director of Development at lmilks@mowwm.org or 616-459-3111 x131.

March for Meals

Meals on Wheels Western Michigan participates in the national #MarchforMeals campaign every March. March for Meals is an annual month-long event, sponsored by Meals on Wheels America. It is designed to generate public awareness about senior hunger and isolation and to celebrate the invaluable services provided by Meals on Wheels Western Michigan.

Chef's Specialty

This evening event is a time for our closest supporters and new friends to come together to support our community seniors living healthy and independently in their own homes. Held in the fall, this event has over 250 attendees and offers a cocktail reception with mingling and cooking demonstrations, a tribute to a special honoree, meaningful words from a client, and a few surprises along the way!  Guests purchase tickets to attend the event, or come as guests of sponsors.

More Than a Meal

Our table hosted event is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the impact Meals on Wheels Western Michigan continues to make in the lives of older adults. The event is held in the spring and has over 200 attendees. Our hosts consist of board members and other prominent supporters. The hosts invite those they know in the community who share our vision. There is no cost to attend, though a direct ask for support is made.
