Ways to Give

Emergency Bags

When inclement weather hits, and the schools and FMOW close, our clients do not receive their daily lunchtime meal.

Fluvanna Meals on Wheels asks the community to fill and donate Emergency Food Bags. 

These “E-Bags” contain 5 full meals, which our clients are to use in the event that we are unable to deliver their lunchtime meals.
