Gingerbread Enchantment is a family-friendly event that raises funds for MOW’s LIFE (Low Income Food & Enrichment) program—those who are homebound, living in poverty and coping with severe medical illness. People who would otherwise go hungry without our support!

They are helping to end hunger and isolation in our community—one meal, one gingerbread house at a time.

Meals on Wheels (MOW) of Albuquerque was founded in 1972 serving 20 clients and delivering 9,400 meals. In 2018, MOW prepared and delivered more than 135,000 meals to over 500 clients throughout the Albuquerque Metro Area. MOW of Albuquerque is the only home-delivered meal program for those requiring a medically-tailored diet.
