Did you know that the number of seniors in America who are food insecure has more than double since 2001, and this number is constantly growing? Many seniors, roughly 36% according to the Census Bureau, have had to choose between buying food and paying for medical care or medicine. These numbers are expected to grow significantly as we continue to see higher food, fuel and utility costs.

Alameda county Meals on Wheels delivers over 2,200 meals every week to homebound elders. Each delivery day, friendly drivers deliver nutritious meals to over 2,200 seniors in Alameda County. The daily caring check-in ensures a senior is well, and reduces isolation and loneliness.
