Currently more than 10 million (1 in 6) seniors face the threat of hunger, and more than 15 million are living alone in isolation…

Meals On Wheels is here to help, and so can you.

What is Meals on Wheels and who do they serve?

  • Meals on Wheels America is a national network of local community organizations that serve seniors facing the threats of hunger and social isolation.
  • We focus on caring for individuals whose diminished mobility or resources makes it hard to shop for food, prepare meals or stay connected to their community. Most of our clients are over 60, but age requirements can vary from program to program.
  • Importantly, Meals on Wheels services allow seniors to stay in their homes, maintaining their independence and happiness.

Why is this important in the United States?

  • Currently more than 10 million (1 in 6) seniors face the threat of hunger, and more than 15 million are living alone in isolation.
