We need you to help us speak up for vulnerable seniors who remain at the greatest risk as the coronavirus continues its spread across the country.

 
Even before COVID-19 hit, Meals on Wheels provided essential nutrition and human connection to millions of seniors in need. And, since March, these local programs have stretched their capacity and resources to serve 77% more meals to our hungry and isolated neighbors.
 
However, continuing to meet this growing and unprecedented demand will require extra food, extra supplies and extra efforts – all as funding for resources is running out.
 
The need for increased funding has never been more urgent.
 
Congress is currently debating legislation to fund government programs, including Meals on Wheels, as well as provide emergency relief to enable them to continue to respond to the pandemic. We only have a few weeks for Congress to act, so timing is of the essence.
 
That's why we need you to take action today.
 
Take a couple of minutes to email your Members of Congress to make sure at-risk seniors are not left behind in the legislative response to COVID-19.
 
Our country cannot turn our back on our most vulnerable in this time of exceptional need.
 
Don't stop speaking out. Our senior neighbors are counting on us.
