Lake Oswego Meal Network Mission Statement
The mission of Lake Oswego Meal Network is to enrich the lives of seniors and disabled residents, including those who are housebound, and to assist them in maintaining their independence by providing nutritious meals in a positive social environment.
This is accomplished through cooperation between the City of Lake Oswego and the Lake Oswego Meal Network Advisory Board to provide a meal program that is community- based, emphasizes volunteer involvement, serves nutritious meals, and is financially sound.
This Board was established in 2003 to support the Meals on Wheels and congregate meal program at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center. Since that time, the 503(c)3 nonprofit board has donated more than $280,000 back to the City to defray the costs of meals for people who cannot afford to donate to the cost of their food. More than one in five recipients cannot contribute to the cost of the meals.
This year the Board donated $50,000 to the City of Lake Oswego to support senior meals. More than 19,000 meals were served or delivered in 2015.
The mission of the volunteer Lake Oswego Meal Network Advisory Board is to support the Lake Oswego Meals Program in the following ways:
- By fundraising;
- By providing program management feedback to the City of Lake Oswego; and
- By promoting community involvement, awareness and support through public relations and community outreach efforts.
