Every year, our Nutrition Department puts out an annual survey to MOWSF clients. We ask for feedback on all sorts of topics, from the menu and food to the drivers. We get important data from this survey that helps us improve services. We also get some great comments!

Survey Highlights

  • 94% of clients state MOWSF provided the services that they needed.
  • 86% clients state that MOWSF food is excellent or good.
  • 20% of clients state that MOWSF is their only source of food.
  • Spaghetti and meatballs is the favorite meal.
