MEALS ON WHEELS
MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY DONATING NOW
A KNOCK AT THE DOOR MIGHT NOT SEEM LIKE A BIG DEAL TO MANY OF US. But, to a homebound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. A knock from Meals on Wheels can even save lives.
Meals on Wheels has been guided by a single goal since the first known U.S. delivery by a small group of Philadelphia citizens in 1954 — to support our senior neighbors to extend their independence and health as they age. What started as a compassionate idea has grown into one of the largest
and most effective social movements in America, currently helping nearly 2.2 million seniors annually in virtually every community in the country.
Meals on Wheels operates in virtually every community in America through their network of more than 5,000 independently run local programs. While the diversity of each program’s services and operations may vary based on the needs and resources of their communities, they are all committed to supporting their senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their homes.
