About Us

Our Mission: To provide nutritious meals to seniors, the homebound and the disabled in northern Onondaga County, and to advocate for their overall well-being.

With the help of more than 300 volunteers, we serve over 400 meals daily and more than 120,000 meals each year. Meals on Wheels services are provided on a short or long term basis, to those who are unable to shop and/or prepare meals on their own. North Area Meals on Wheels (NAMOW) helps seniors and the disabled stay in their own homes and maintain their independence. From our kitchen to their homes, our caring volunteers deliver nutritious meals. This service is available to people of all income levels, age groups, either on a temporary or permanent basis without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, handicap or political affiliation.

NAMOW is different in that it owns its own, very recognizable, building on Church Street in North Syracuse, NY. All meals are made from scratch here. Meals are funded in part by a grant from Onondaga County ALTCS, NYSOFA, and ACL. Meals are also funded through private pay, donations, and fund raising.

Areas served:

Cicero, North Syracuse, Liverpool, Mattydale, Brewerton, Clay, Bridgeport and now serving Baldwinsville clients who qualify for Wellness In Nutrition (WIN) Program Onondaga County.

We serve as a contract organization with the Onondaga County Department of Aging Youth and PACE program.

The cost of the meals is minimal and financial assistance can be provided for those meeting the required guidelines.

The cost to provide our service exceeds what we charge for meals. We rely on private contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations to meet program costs.

This assistance is vital in order to keep the North Area Meals On Wheels program alive. Your tax deductible contribution, in any amount, would be greatly appreciated!

We are a non-profit, equal opportunity organization.
