HENDERSONVILLE HOME BOUND MEALS PROGRAM
Thank You from the Hendersonville Home Bound Meals Board.
A few weeks back the Board met to discuss how to make up the projected shortfall that due to Covid – 19 was eminent in 2020. Along with most other non-profit and service organizations, our inability to host fundraisers posed a new and challenging problem. Numerous ideas were discussed, with the board finally deciding upon simply asking our friends and neighbors to contribute to this good cause. With fifteen board members, we each reached out to those we knew in the community and thanks to your generosity our goal of $30,000 was reached.
With a still uncertain future, we will continue to reach out, asking you to help us ensure that no one in this community that needs a meal goes without one. But we want to pause and thank you for your generous gift and from the heart that gave it. We live in a wonderful, caring community, and we are honored at the way in which you responded to this need.
God Bless Each And Every One Of You!

Congratulations to the many people that donate and volunteer at Hendersonville Home Bound Meals Program. Thursday, August 15, the local AARP chapter celebrated its 30th anniversary. At the end of the event, Home Bound Meals was presented this certificate for the impact Hendersonville Home Bound Meals Program has on the community.
The Hendersonville Home Bound Meals Program (HBMP) is an all-volunteer organization founded in 1982 to serve the elderly population of Hendersonville. In 1982, the average number of meals served daily was 17.
Today we have exceeded our numbers from 1982 several times over. We have a list of people waiting to join the program. The segment in the population in need of this service is growing. Our ability to serve the increasing demand is only limited by our funding.
The Home Bound Meals Program has the exclusive rights to serve the eligible population in the city of Hendersonville and the surrounding areas. The program is a non-discriminatory organization.
