Meals on Wheels Kitsap
Since 1973, Meals on Wheels Kitsap (MOWK) has provided a nutritional and social lifeline for Bainbridge Island residents, aged 60+ years through healthy, nutritious meals and more. Our mission is to “provide meals, nutrition, and support services to improve the quality of life for seniors and others with hunger and health needs in Kitsap County.” Our vision is a “community of people living well while aging in place with good nutrition, independence, and dignity.” We accomplish both through two primary year-round programs targeting mobile and homebound seniors–Community Dining and Home Delivered Meals. Mobile clients can pick up frozen “Meals to Go” once a week at the Bainbridge Senior Center, while the homebound have meals delivered directly to their homes by MOWK drivers. Additional services offered include: nutrition education, dietary counseling, telephone outreach, and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program.
