Food & Friends _Meals On Wheels Charity Profile
Food & Friends is a senior meal program designed to support independent living. Balanced nutrition and social contact on a frequent basis are key to maintaining good health, and necessary for living independently at home. In many cases volunteers are the only people our seniors see on any given day. We serve more than a meal; we provide vital social contact and a safety net.

Food & Friends _Meals On Wheels Donation Information
Your donation to Food & Friends is a lifeline to hundreds of seniors and people with disabilities in our community. Without Food & Friends, many would not have the proper nutrition to maintain good health.
Your tax deductible donation to Food & Friends helps make it possible for homebound seniors in our region to avoid the trauma and financial burden of more costly nursing home care. For some who rely on Food & Friends, the deliveries help them temporarily while they recover from an illness or surgery. Others need help for longer periods of time. We cannot do it alone.
Please, help us help our seniors with your donation of $30 or more. That's all it takes to help bring nutritious meals to one senior for a month.
