THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR CHAN, FOR SUPPORTING HOMEBOUND SENIORS IN NEED!


Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan
has donated $100,000 to help Meals on Wheels continue providing hot, nutritious meals and a daily wellness check to homebound seniors in the City of Oakland and central Alameda County. Supervisor Chan’s generous contribution will help us feed some of our community’s most vulnerable seniors, but we still need your help!

Please make a financial contribution today in support of Meals on Wheels. Donations of any size are welcome and will be used to feed a senior in need. Just $40 can feed a senior for a week!

The demand for home-delivered meals continues to grow as the population ages, but the funding provided for our services has never been enough to meet the need. At the same time, wages, the price of food, and delivery costs have all increased. We need your help to continue caring for our seniors!

Your contribution will put nourishing food on the tables of seniors in need and help them continue living independent, healthy, and happy lives. Please click on the “Donate” button and make your tax-deductible contribution today!
