Ways to Give

A volunteer gives a meal to a Meals on Wheels client


Meals on Wheels provides so much more than a meal. We’re a powerhouse movement of everyday people who are standing up together to help seniors live out the independent lives they deserve while enjoying the kind of life-giving connections that will nourish them as they continue to age. Discover  how you can support our seniors using the resources below.
