EAST COOPER MEALS ON WHEELS
East Cooper Meals on Wheels delivers daily nutrition to residents within our service area who are homebound or unable to provide their own meals. We also advocate on behalf of recipients whose needs exceed the scope of our program. We desire that our homebound neighbors live a well nourished life with independence and dignity.
We serve nutritious meals to all homebound residents east of the Cooper, regardless of age or income. We operate without a waiting list and there is never a charge for meals. In 2015, we introduced the Feeding Friends program, opening up service of meals to people in outpatient care while recovering from transplant or surgery. Partnering with local hospitals and medical professionals, East Cooper Meals on Wheels aims to help alleviate some of the burdens that fall on patients and their caregivers during the recovery process. Doctors and nurses have been very supportive of the Feeding Friends program, well aware that nutrition is a vital component to recovery and helping their patients avoid hospital readmission.
