RMF is Proud to Support Meals on Wheels America

Even before COVID-19 emerged as a worldwide threat, nearly 10 million seniors in America struggled with hunger, 8 million lived in isolation, and more than 7 million had incomes below the poverty line. 

We are proud to be a part of the inaugural Momentum Circle to support Meals on Wheels America’s efforts to lead its national network of local programs committed to combatting the real issues of senior isolation and hunger. 

The Momentum Circle represents a cross-sector family of donors who have come together to actively engage in strengthening the Meals on Wheels network and to improve the lives of vulnerable seniors across the country.

LENA'S STORY

Lena, 79, worked and joyfully engaged in her community her whole life, both through her work as a supervisor at Fort Dix and serving as a charter member of her church where she taught Sunday school. 

“People know you because you smile so much, that’s what my husband used to tell me,” Lena says. 

As she grew older, she became ill. On top of that, her husband passed away. Suddenly, it seemed she needed help to remain independent in her own home. 

Her children and grandchildren look after her the best they can, but when they can’t be there, she, fortunately, can trust Meals on Wheels to be there to provide a watchful eye and nutritious food. 

“My favorite thing about Meals on Wheels? I love the macaroni and cheese. And, I enjoy the volunteer visits. They’re so nice.” 

Meals on Wheels America supports the local programs that provide safety, human connection, and nutritious food to keep millions of seniors like Lena independent and healthy.
