we’re on a mission to make sure No senior goes hungry.
nutrition • community • impact
Annually, we deliver over 300,000 nutritious meals through Meals on Wheels to seniors who are living at home with little or no assistance to obtain adequate meals. We serve all ages (60+) and all incomes with a suggested donation of $9 per day, though no one who is eligible is turned away for inability to pay. Our approach to deliver more than a meal means we also provide friendly Wellness Checks to alleviate loneliness while monitoring health & wellness.

After my daughter moved to Canada I wasn’t sure how I was going to do without her help, but luckily I was told about Meals on Wheels and Age Well. The meals have made life stable for both her and I. I know she does not have to worry as much, and neither do I. On top of that the senior center has filled my days with so much joy and friendship that I did not expect.
