Meals on Wheels America News - You Can Feed America's Seniors

Clubs and Organizations

June 18, 2020

Before the COVID-19 crisis, millions of seniors were living with hunger and in isolation.

With the pandemic's shelter-in-place requirements for older Americans, demand for meals has dramatically increased since the crisis began.

8 out of 10 local programs report that their weekly meal requests have at least doubled. Some programs are seeing requests growing by the thousands.

Your donation will ensure homebound seniors get the food and safety checks they need.

Before the virus, many Meals on Wheels clients had neighbors to help out. Now, their friends and family are physically distancing themselves according to safety precautions. And older adults are too afraid to go to the grocery store.

The result? Millions of seniors can't get the meals they need and feel more alone than ever.

Luckily, Meals on Wheels is there to provide nutritious food and a check-in to make sure older adults are safe and healthy.

This is the time for us all to step up, because seniors need us now more than ever.

Donate today to help Meals on Wheels programs keep up with the rapidly growing need during this difficult time and all year long.

One thing is certain: Meals on Wheels was there for seniors long before COVID-19 hit – and we won't slow down now.

Your generosity will mean the world to homebound seniors, now and in the future.
