Due to COVID-19, MOWOCNC has pivoted from daily hot meal delivery and check-ins, to once a week delivery of frozen meal boxes and phone check-ins 2-3x/week. We also distribute emergency food and supply boxes to recipients in need of extra support during the pandemic. In 2020, we served over 17,000 more meals than we did in 2019. To maintain that level of service, we need your support.
Every ticket purchase directly funds meals delivered.
