Meals On Wheels by MCHRA

The Challenge

Even the most independent among us, if fortunate to live long enough, may experience a decline in mobility or health that can strip away our independence and diminish the quality of our lives. Great advances in medicine have extended our average life expectancy to a record high of 78.7 years. Living longer means more years spent in the struggles that accompany old age. Add to that the increase in geographic mobility of our families and the result is millions of seniors left behind, hungry and alone.

The Solution

“A hot meal and a good friend are two of life’s greatest enjoyments. Meals-on-Wheels has been providing both for more than 40 years. In fact, we provide congregate meals, home-delivered meals, outreach, nutrition education, supportive services, and recreational activities for individuals age 60 and older.

Hot meals are planned by a registered dietician and prepared in a commercial kitchen Monday–Friday and delivered to the meal sites; volunteers deliver the meals and take great care to place food in proper storage. Each meal site must pass the Health Department’s rigorous cleanliness and safety inspections.”- MCHRA
