                                  We would love to take this opportunity to tell you a little about ourselves.

          In 1983, Gertrude Mae "TRUDY" Bartlett , started serving sack lunches out of her kitchen to Seniors in need in the White Mountains. She enlisted her friends and others who shared her compassion and respect for our elders to deliver these sack lunches. Today Meals On Wheels Arizona White Mountains operates out of the Turn of the Card Community Center. As was with Trudy, this would not be possible without help, or our community members who either devote their time or donations to continue her and her friend's legacy that started 4 decades ago.

          Meals on Wheels is a community based program designed specifically to meet the nutritional and social needs of seniors. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by Meals on Wheels. They are our parents, our neighbors and our friends. We currently serve approximately 180 meals out of our facility per day, 5 days a week. These meals include Meals on Wheels, Headstart breakfast and lunch , and our Congregate Meal program. Our goal is to double this amount, the only way we will reach this goal is by the help of our wonderful community. We currently have 6 routes for Meals on Wheels. We would love to increase this number so we can ensure that there truly is no senior left to worry about where their next meal will be coming from. If you are interested in volunteering to help us meet this goal please reach out to Tina or Karen at 928-532-0656.

          We are able to continue to operate by the donations of our amazing White Mountains community. If you would like to donate please reach out to Karen or stop by and see us!!!

          In addition to the meals we serve, we also have many activities that we would love to have you enjoy. Please take a look at our calendar of events.
