As unbelievable as it sounds, every day as many as 5 million senior citizens in the United States go hungry. For some, but not all, the reasons are financial. For many others, frail health, loneliness, distant family members and hopelessness are at the root of the problem.

A recent, comprehensive study found that every day, more than 11 percent of senior citizens - from all races, ethnic groups and walks of life - struggle to get adequate daily nutrition. Hunger impacts their quality of life and their ability to accomplish the most basic activities of daily living.

Then I discovered the cost is really very small.  I know Meals on Wheels helps those who can't pay the full amount.

I worried that he wasn't eating well.  Meals on Wheels serves him lunch and dinner and brings me peace of mind.

My health is poor and I can't get out of the house like I used to. Thank goodness Meals on Wheels brings me two meals every weekday.

I feel good knowing that a little bit of my time goes such a long way to help others.

"I Wish I Lived Closer to My Mom"

I can't be there to help her with her daily needs as often as I'd like.  I'm so grateful Meals on Wheels makes sure she gets enough to eat.

 
So No Homebound Person Goes Hungry
We believe no senior or homebound person should go hungry.  Our generous Main Line Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver two nutritious meals a day, Monday through Friday (including holidays) to men and women in our community who are unable to shop or cook for themselves.  As a member organization of the Meals On Wheels Association of America, we work diligently to ensure that aged, short- or long-term convalescent, homebound and handicapped people have enough to eat.  There is a minimal cost for our services, but a subsidy can be arranged for those who are unable to pay the full amount.
