At the core of We are Meals On Wheels is our connection to millions of individuals - from the seniors in desperate need of nutritious meals and human contact to the volunteers who work tirelessly to make sure seniors in their communities are served.
We are connected to seniors – they are members of our families, our friends, our neighbors, part of our community.
We are a network of 5,000 Meals On Wheels programs 1.7 million volunteers strong, and we know firsthand how important being connected to seniors is. We know that being connected can mean the difference between hope and despair or even life and death.
We are on the frontlines every day serving over one million meals to seniors across the country. We know that we are delivering more than meals. We have seen that in the faces of the seniors we touch.
We know what hunger looks like too. And we know that over 8.8 million seniors in America today are facing the threat of it, because they are not getting the nutritious meals they need.We know senior hunger is a serious problem. We know that it must be stopped. And we know that there is something that we can do about it.
We are working every day to put an end to senior hunger by delivering nutritious meals and providing compassion to seniors in communities across this land.
