The Brandon Area Meals on Wheels program started 42 years ago through a cooperative effort of Limona Village Chapel United Methodist Church and St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church. The program has grown to include 19 area churches and currently prepares, serves and delivers approximately 250 hot meals per day from Monday through Friday in the Brandon community.
First Presbyterian Church of Brandon provides meals on Wednesdays. If you would like to volunteer by preparing or delivering meals we would love to have you.
