Why Meals on Wheels?

Home-delivered meals enable clients to age independently or heal in the comfort of their homes, thereby helping clients maintain a positive mental outlook, sustain social connections, and even help keep their families intact.  On the state level, approximately 15% of Pennsylvania’s senior citizens face food insecurity or threat of hunger (Source: Meals on Wheels Association of Pennsylvania)

Individuals who are food insecure are less likely to have good nutritional habits and are at higher risk of chronic health conditions and depression.  By providing a regular source of nutritional meals, Meals on Wheels fights food insecurity and senior hunger and promotes better health and quality of life.  Clients also benefit from a brief, but daily, social interaction when a volunteer delivers the freshly made meals to the client’s door.
