The Meals On Wheels
Leadership Academy

Empowering Leaders to Stand Against Senior Hunger

The Association established the Meals On Wheels Leadership Academy to provide customized education and professional development programs to individuals working in Senior Nutrition Programs.

The Academy provides high-quality education and training, tailored to the specific needs of this unique community.  Senior Nutrition Program staff, Board members and volunteers can participate in a wide range of learning opportunities designed to equip them with the enhanced knowledge and skills they need to run their programs in an even more effective way.

Our Academy courses prepare and support Meals On Wheels Members and others working in the senior nutrition field to face the challenging times ahead.

Is the Academy Right for Me?

Courses offered by the Meals On Wheels Leadership Academy are designed for people who work in Senior Nutrition Programs.  While we cover many topics that may be of interest to nonprofit professionals in general, many of the examples, exercises, case studies and content are tailored specifically to the needs of professionals in the senior nutrition sector.

Those who benefit most from Academy programs are:

  • Professionals looking to build their knowledge in the senior nutrition field.

  • Experienced Senior Nutrition Program leaders and managers looking to refresh and expand their current skill set.

  • Young professionals at Senior Nutrition Programs looking to develop their talents and leadership potential. 

Members of the Meals On Wheels Association of America receive discounts on registration fees for webinars and online educational courses and are eligible to apply for education grants and scholarships to attend multi-day live Academy Institutes (If available) or the Annual Conferences. 

All others interested in senior nutrition program operations or non-profit operations in general are welcome to attend classes, webinars and courses in the soon to be launched Learning Management System and may enroll in the Leadership Certificate program.


I had a great experience, and am very excited to share the dozens of insights and action items with the team back home! Thank you for helping us to take our operation to a new level of excellence. It is sincerely appreciated!
