    RALLYING A NATION

    America’s seniors are lonely. And, as a nation, we’ve allowed them to fall into the shadows. Families are living farther away and neighbors are more strangers than ever before. We all have the power to help change that.

    That’s why Meals on Wheels America, along with celebrity supporters, has launched the #RespectYourElders campaign to garner support for America’s aging population and raise awareness for the importance of honoring seniors nationwide.

    KEEPING SENIORS SAFE AMID COVID-19

    Make Good Go Further

    PROGRAMS SERVING MORE MEALS THAN EVER BEFORE TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND

    During the pandemic, we sent $31.3 million directly to the frontlines. That’s more than 1,000 grants to support 628 local communities. Our impact spanned the nation and went into the communities that needed it most. Thanks to our generous donors, we’ve been able to provide healthy meals, social contact and a watchful eye for millions of seniors. But, our work has just begun. We still need to safely serve seniors in need through the end of the pandemic and long into the future.
     

    OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE

    SCALING THE SAFETY NET FOR SENIORS

    As we chart a way out of the COVID-19 crisis and towards a more stable future, we lead the national network of local programs determined to combat senior isolation and hunger. This success requires financial sustainability, so we’ve launched the Go Further Fund. This fund will directly help scale our vital lifeline for older adults by supporting communities in crisis, building capacity and driving innovation to enable our nation will tackle these issues head-on.

    Give to the Meals on Wheels Go Further Fund to ensure local communities have what they need to continue to deliver a vital lifeline to our most at-risk Americans.

    March for Meals

    THE OLDER AMERICANS ACT NUTRITION PROGRAM TURNS 50

    Each year, the March for Meals celebration commemorates the historic day in March of 1972 when President Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 to include a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older. This legislation supported the rapid growth of the nationwide network of senior nutrition programs – commonly referred to as Meals on Wheels – that collectively served more than 223 million meals to over 2.4 million seniors prior to the pandemic.

    Join us in celebrating and help show your support through volunteering, donating and speaking out – to ensure we are able to deliver for another 50 years.
