Alyssa Koeck, Executive Director
I am honored and proud to lead Monroe County Meals on Wheels. It is a privilege to work closely with our dedicated staff, knowledgeable board, and devoted volunteers to bring nutritious meals to the homebound in Monroe County.
Helping those in need is all I've ever wanted to do, and Monroe County Meals on Wheels has given me the opportunity to change lives, no matter how big or small, every single day. I feel proud and accomplished with the work I am doing, and feel as though I have a purpose.
In 1972, with the support of the Monroe County Clergy Association, Church Women United organized Monroe County’s first and only Meals on Wheels program. In October of that same year, Monroe County Meals on Wheels started delivering meals to 11 clients in Stroudsburg with the assistance of various county groups, including Visiting Nurse, AARP, MH-MR, and the Cooperative Extension Service. In 2021, while the pandemic was raging, our staff and volunteers delivered 135,000+ meals to more than 600 individuals living in Monroe County.
Monroe County Meals on Wheels is committed to nurturing an environment of inclusion to strengthen diversity of ages, cultures, abilities, and ideas. We have exceptional core values of integrity, respect, inclusion, creativity, commitment, and teamwork as a foundation. Through these beliefs and values, we practice, embrace, and celebrate diversity in all of its forms such as age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, economic circumstance, race, religion, veteran status, or any other unique characteristic.
