Packing
Help package meals for local seniors!

One in six seniors faces hunger every day.

With increasing senior population and senior poverty rates, it has become more important now than ever to ensure our kupuna are fed.

As a delivery driver or meal packer, you can be an integral part of the Lanakila Meals on Wheels team, providing healthy complete meals to seniors across the island of Oahu. By kindly donating just a few hours of your week, you make it possible for homebound seniors to enjoy delicious, nutritious meals with a side of aloha.

About Lanakila Meals on Wheels

Location:

1809 Bachelot Street, Honolulu, HI 96817, US

Mission Statement

Lanakila Meals on Wheels is a program of Lanakila Pacific, a 501(c)(3) organization offering assistance programs and operating social enterprises to build independence and improve the quality of life for individuals with cognitive, physical, social or age-related challenges. Since 1939, our vision has been to embody self-sufficiency and inspire inclusive communities where people of all ages and abilities are empowered to live independently, find meaningful employment and thrive in spirit.

Description

As the only island-wide senior meal delivery service, Lanakila Meals on Wheels served 2,700 seniors and provided over 576,000 meals in FY21 - all thanks to our wonderful volunteers. Our meals are nutritious, providing homebound, low-income, or isolated kupuna with the boost they need to continue living with dignity at home. And it's more than just a meal - valuable interactions with staff and volunteers provide the aloha and wellness checks often missing from the lives of solitary seniors.
