Donated funds will be used by Meals on Wheels to:

  • Stock up on food and supplies.
  • Subsidize home delivery of meals (transportation and personnel costs.)
  • Check-in on isolated seniors through phone reassurance and technology.
  • In-kind and other product distribution to help the hardest-hit communities.
  • Public awareness of senior malnutrition.
  • Senior safety and infection control measures.

Meals on Wheels America supports thousands of programs across the country dedicated to helping solve the problem of senior hunger and isolation by in-home or senior center delivery of nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks. The organization funds research in the area of senior hunger and isolation with reports on In-Home Senior Safety, Hunger in Older Adults, and Partnerships Between Meals on Wheels and Healthcare.
