ABOUT OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM

LEAN MANAGEMENT WITH DEEP EXPERTISE

It takes a lot of work to produce and deliver more than a million meals each year to a primarily homebound population. From client management and nutrition services, to logistics, volunteer recruitment and fundraising, Meals on Wheels for WNY’s management team has deep expertise in not-for-profit administration and relevant skilled professions. This expertise helps the organization operate with a significant volunteer workforce. Meals on Wheels has just 23 full-time and 55 part-time staff, in addition to 1,600 volunteers.
