About WesleyLife Meals on Wheels

The WesleyLife Meals on Wheels history dates back to 1967 when the Des Moines-Polk County (DMPC) Home Care/Homemaker Services program was created with the goal to provide one nutritionally balanced, fresh meal every weekday at noon to help individuals maintain independence.  

In 1990, Home Care Plus (formerly known as DMPC Home Care Services) assumed the name Generations Incorporated. In 2006, Generations merged with WesleyLife. Today, more than 230,000 meals are delivered on an annual basis throughout the Greater Des Moines area.
