Meals on Wheels America is the leadership organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network serves virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million staff and volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity. By providing funding, leadership, education, research and advocacy support, Meals on Wheels America empowers its local member programs to strengthen their communities, one senior at a time.
The Meals on Wheels program delivers more than just a meal; for those clients who are homebound, delivery volunteers also provide a connection to the community. For the client’s family, the program delivers peace of mind knowing their loved ones will receive a good meal, personal contact, and a wellness check.
An America in which all seniors live nourished lives with independence and dignity.
To empower local community programs to improve the health and quality of life of the seniors they serve so that no one is left hungry or isolated.
