The Meals on Wheels Association of America (first known as NAMP, the National Association of Meal Programs) has been a prevalent organization throughout the nation since 1954, when the first senior meal program was established in Philadelphia, PA.

With the enactment of the Older Americans Act in 1972, a platform was developed around concerted efforts for senior nutrition; and in 1974, members of various senior nutrition programs met in Washington, D.C., creating the National Organization of Home Delivered and Congregate Meal Programs.
