During these uncertain times, how can we help?

Meals on Wheels of Alameda County (MOWAC) financially assists five County Meals on Wheels (MOW) in feeding seniors. Each delivery day, 2,200 low-income, homebound seniors in Alameda County receive not only nutritious meals, but also warm smiles, companionship and safety/wellness checks from staff and volunteers of five local MOW service providers. Sometimes MOW delivery drivers are the only people our senior neighbors get to interact with all day. MOW is so much more than food for the body; it’s also the food of kindness to the soul. MOW gives our senior neighbors a helping hand and the care and compassion all human beings deserve. MOW enables them to retain their independence and stay in their homes, where they want to be. Without support from MOWAC, local MOW programs would have to decrease their service level, seniors in need would be placed on waiting lists and some programs would have to close their doors entirely. In short, MOWAC staves off senior hunger in Alameda County.
THE SENIOR HUNGER CRISIS
MOW IS THE COST-EFFECTIVE & COMPASSIONATE SOLUTION
For a total cost of $9 per meal, homebound seniors can receive daily nutritious meals.
