Meals on Wheels of Boulder (MOWB) Ensuring good things come to those who just can’t wait!

Since Francea Phillips joined MOWB as Executive Director in 1994, she’s seen delivery go from 90 meals a day to over 225 today. Learn how MOWB helps strengthen our community by helping older, disabled (and sometimes invisible) Boulder neighbors overcome challenges to maintaining independence. MOWB is more than a meal service, drivers also provide a much needed daily check in with those that may not see another person all day!

With the current and expected shifts in population age and density, Meals is planning on expanding future services by relocating to a new, larger facility in September of 2019. Learn about whom we serve, how those services are expanding, and the many volunteer opportunities that are available.

Francea Phillips has been leading us for over twenty years as our President and CEO. A fifth generation Longmontian, she previously owned a marketing, advertising and event planning agency. She embraces change and challenges like a champion, putting her prior experience to great use here at Meals on Wheels of Boulder. Francea loves learning and says, "I'm inspired every time I read a 'white paper' or find a study on new techniques or new ways of doing things. I love attending workshops that introduce new ideas and new ways of thinking." In her spare time (what's that?), she loves to travel. She's also part of a group called the Walkie Talkies who hike around the lake in her neighborhood. She loves humor and comedy -- the lighter side of life! What's Francea's favorite thing about working at Meals on Wheels of Boulder? "Every day is a new challenge and definitely a new adventure. It's never boring. The daily challenges require on-the-spot decision making. Helping people is what it's all about.
