2021 has been another tumultuous year. In the wake of vaccines and slow return to routines, millions of seniors still rely on us to provide the support they need to continue to living healthy and independently at home.
As of July this year, Meals on Wheels programs were still serving 44% more seniors and delivering 57% more meals than pre-pandemic levels. Projections predict that the number of seniors who need our support will double by 2060 and the complexities between hunger, isolation and the interrelated issues that erode health, are increasingly imperative to solve.
Together, we can ensure that every senior who needs our help will receive a daily nutritious meal, social visit and safety check. With your help, we can continue to do whatever it takes to ensure Meals on Wheels remains the solution that’s fully able to support our nation’s seniors – today, tomorrow and for many decades to come.
