Meals on Wheels Delaware
There are currently 4,360 homebound seniors receiving Meals on Wheels. Last year 706,000 meals were served by dedicated volunteers. Meals on Wheels Delaware raises funds to support the agencies that prepare and deliver the meals. We fund meals after regular funding is exhausted, medical meal supplements, walk in freezers, replacement of food delivery vans and kitchen equipment, insulated hot and cold bags for safe transport and more!
Seniors who receive meals at home say they feel more safe and secure and are able to live comfortably in their own home. The nutritious meal, friendly volunteer visit and safety check help our seniors cope with three of the biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence.
