DID YOU KNOW?
- 18.4 million seniors live in or near poverty, and 14.4 million (1 in 3) experience falls each year.
- 191,982 seniors in Arizona are threatened by hunger
- 302,390 seniors in Arizona are isolated, living alone
By delivering a daily nutritious meal, a friendly visit, and a safety check, Meals on Wheels volunteers are helping to combat three of aging’s most harmful threats: inadequate nutrition, isolation, and declining quality of life.
The YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix is the ONLY Meals on Wheels Program serving the cities of Glendale and El Mirage.
Meals on Wheels is a network made up of more than 5,000 local, community-based programs working to deliver nutritious meals and companionship to seniors.
