During the 2011-2012 fiscal year, we served 11,556 MOWs. During the 2010-2011, fiscal year we served 21,921 home delivered meals. Over the last 2 years, we have had a decrease in funding totaling $39,000. This is a direct result of cuts to the Department of Human Services funding. Our goal is to establish a system that is not so dependent on federal and state budgets. Fundraising, volunteers, and improved efficiency will help MCOA&CS and the community continue, “To support those that have supported us”.
