Every quarter, our North Asheville office provides additional support to a chosen local community organization. We hope you will partner with us this quarter to make an even bigger difference.
What is MOW-ABC?
Many seniors live alone and are unable to care for themselves in the same way they used to. Meals on Wheels of Asheville and Buncombe County (MOW-ABC) provides hot, nutritious meals to the elderly homebound, allowing them to live in their own homes and maintain their dignity while aging.
Since 1974, MOW-ABC has provided free meals to those in need. Today, what began as a grassroots effort now includes a commercial kitchen, 11 staff members, and more than 300 volunteers who deliver prepared food to more than 500 elderly homebound residents as the largest provider of at-home meal delivery services in Western North Carolina. They also offer additional programs and services to foster independence and enhance our neighbors’ quality of life:
- Pet food program.
- Snow box program.
- Community connections program.
- Santa for Seniors program.
- Collaborative services including access to community medical equipment closets, free/low-cost legal assistance, and tax-preparation.

At Beverly-Hanks, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity and means to Live the Life You Choose. Help us help Meals on Wheels today. We are collecting the following canned food items between now and June 30, 2017: protein-heavy foods like chicken, tuna, Vienna sausage, beef stew, and soups; and pop-top pet foods including small-morsel dog food, cat food, and pet treats and toys. Drop off your donations at our North Asheville office, 820 Merrimon Avenue, or call (828) 251-1800 to arrange a pickup.
We encourage you to give of your time and money to an organization that means something to you, as well. Reach out to Meals on Wheels or contact your Beverly-Hanks agent to learn about local nonprofits in your community.
