Do YOU expect to eat 7 days a week? Many elders cannot. Holiday Meals on Wheels fills the gap of the publicly-funded weekday program to provide our vulnerable and nutritionally at-risk elders with the most basic of human needs, one nutritious meal a day, every day!
Food insecurity - problems with the availability, accessibility and utilization of food - among low-income elders (age 60 and up) is a special concern since they may have unique nutritional needs and may require special diets for medical conditions.
Due to increasing demand and insufficient funding, the publicly funded meals program is limited to only one hot meal per day, Monday thru Friday. No meals are provided on weekends, let alone holidays under the publicly funded program. Many elders must choose between food, medicine, utilities, and other necessities of living!
Donations help to ensure that resources and service options are available to older persons and their families.
