Meals on Wheels

Q Center’s *eRa* Program is excited to host a lunch program for senior folk on Thursdays 12:00pm -1:00pm. A time to eat together and meet together.

Meals are served on a donation basis, suggested donation is $3, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Meal numbers are limited, so if planning to attend, please contact Susan Kocen at 503-234-7837 or at

The Meals on Wheels People was founded in 1969 by three caring women, Jean Wade, Martha Shull and Cay Kreiger, who saw a need in the community that was not being met. Originally called “Loaves and Fishes” these three women gathered in the basement of the Lincoln Street Methodist Church in February 1970 to serve a hot lunch to about a dozen seniors and then delivered 14 Meals on Wheels on paper plates wrapped in newspaper. Today the Meals on Wheels People produces 5,000, nutritious meals five days each week in a 14,000-square-foot commercial kitchen located in the heart of Multnomah Village.
