Narrator: Did you know that 1 in 4 households in America include elderly residents and that almost 10% of U.S. households are made up of elderly residents living alone? Many of these seniors are not getting the nutritious meals they need. In fact, over 6 million seniors face the threat of hunger every day.

The Meals On Wheels Association of America is working to end senior hunger with a network of almost 2 million volunteers. Our local programs deliver over 1 million meals every day to seniors in need.

Together we’re working to end senior hunger by 2020. We areMeals On Wheels. So no senior goes hungry, join our network today and support seniors in your community.
