Meals on Wheels America News - Act Now for America's Hungry and Lonely Seniors!

Clubs and Organizations

February 6, 2020

We know you care about seniors across the country.

Today, we're asking you to help us continue the fight.

The Older Americans Act (OAA) is a critical source of funding for programs like Meals on Wheels, and it's up for reauthorization now.

The funding authorized by this law is one of the reasons thousands of local Meals on Wheels programs are able to deliver a meal and so much more to seniors facing hunger and isolation.

In many communities, it's the reason Meals on Wheels can exist at all.

The good news is that the House and Senate have reached a bipartisan agreement to update and reauthorize the OAA for five years. And now, the bill is in the Senate for a vote.

That's why we need you today! You can help ensure that the health and well-being of seniors remain a priority.

In fact, we can't do it alone.

Write a message to your Senators and urge them to support the bipartisan Older Americans Act of 2020.

Not sure what to say? Start with our sample email, edit it if you wish, and send it instantly. It takes only a minute to help change lives.

This legislation has supported local Meals on Wheels programs for more than 45 years. The need for these important policies and critical funding will only increase as our country's senior population continues to rapidly grow.

We can't let this support stop now.
