#WeFeedManatee Update from Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee

Coconut Telegraph

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee is continuing our mission to feed Manatee County residents. With our in-person programs at Daybreak Adult Day Center, Friendship Dining Centers, and the Enrichment Center temporarily suspended, we continue our two largest, and core operations involving Home-delivered Meals and The Food Bank of Manatee. Both programs have seen an increase in need in the last few weeks and we anticipate that need to continue to grow as the ripple effects of COVID-19 impact Manatee County.

All Home-delivered Meal clients are continuing to receive vital nutrition and we are adding a telephone reassurance program to call clients and check on them during the week. We are working to ensure the shelves at The Food Bank of Manatee are stocked for the nearly 100 food pantries and partner agencies who depend on us to provide the food they distribute through their various programs. We have also added a new service providing weekend Food4Families through our partnership with the School District of Manatee County. More information on Food4Families is available here.Tens of thousands of meals have been provided in the last few weeks. We are proud to continue service to our clients, food pantries, and partner agencies while adhering to the rapidly changing mandates and updates from government officials. Updates on all our COVID-19 efforts are available here. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance, please visit www.MealsOnWheelsPLUS.org and click FIND SUPPORT.
