Meals On WheelsState Associations: What they are all about
At the 2008 Meals On Wheels Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, an open meeting was convened and everyone interested in discussing state-specific initiatives that supported Senior Nutrition Programs was invited to come and share what was happening in their states. It was a hit. Standing room only and brimming over, not only with people but also with ideas, energy and enthusiasm. There was a clear need for a formal infrastructure, or network, of state organizations that could communicate with and support one another and all Meals On Wheels Members nationwide. The Meals On Wheels Association of America-Affiliated State Associations became the formal infrastructure.
Meals On Wheels State Associations:
The Meals On Wheels Association is consistently lauded by Members as affording outstanding and invaluable national networking opportunities to individuals. The establishment of a network of State Associations across the United States allows local Senior Nutrition Programs to duplicate those principles and opportunities on the state level.
Current Meals On Wheels State Associations:
The Meals On Wheels Assoication of America requires no financial commitment of any kind from State Associations.
The Meals On Wheels Association of America can assist state-based groups in establishing a Meals On Wheels State Association.
