COVID-19 Response Fund

We have already sent over $1.4 million dollars directly to the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.

To date, your donations have already given more than 100 local Meals on Wheels programs a fighting chance in serving as a vital lifeline for at-risk seniors throughout this crisis.

And, this is just the beginning.

Funds donated to the Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund are paying for additional meals, gloves and disinfectants for volunteers, ramped-up telephone check-in programs and so much more. And, it's all being targeted to the communities that need it the most.

"We added over 500 seniors in need of meals in the last week. We anticipate this need to continue, and we will accept all those in need who qualify." — Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund

That's just one community.

We're hearing the same thing from communities all across the country. But, meeting this spike in demand comes at a cost. Our programs are facing expenses they could never have anticipated. We're doing everything possible to support seniors in this critical moment, and we hope you will continue to help.

Thanks for all you do to help others, and we sincerely hope you and your loved ones are safe at home and healthy.
