TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The costs and efforts associated with protecting seniors from COVID-19 require additional emergency funds, which is why we are working with federal lawmakers to make sure vulnerable seniors are not forgotten in the national response.
And that won't be enough. That's why we launched the Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund to support this effort. The Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund will help local communities across the country meet the increased demand for nutritious meals that can keep our seniors safe and healthy.
“We added over 500 seniors in need of meals in the last week.
We anticipate this need to continue, and we will accept all those in need who qualify."
