Food For Their Table - Nourishment For Your Soul
Since 1974 Meals on Wheels has been providing nutritious meals to the homebound elderly and persons with disabilities in Wake County in an effort to improve health, reduce isolation, and prevent unnecessary institutionalization. Serving close to 1,300 meals daily to homes and nutrition centers, Meals on Wheels provides the frailest of our community’s citizens with a voice to achieve healthful independence.

SEQUESTRATION CUTS = 12,000 LESS MEALS SERVED
Meals on Wheels of Wake County has just received word that due to cuts to federal funding through the sequestration we will lose funding for 12,000 meals this year.
More senior adults are applying for Meals on Wheels than ever before. Cuts in federal funding mean that we must leave qualified participants on a waiting list and potentially cut current clients. The reality is that we need more money to buy more nutritious meals for more people. The last thing our most vulnerable neighbors and family members need is to lose this essential service.
Please help us feed our senior neighbors in need. Your donation will make a big impact for our homebound senior neighbors.
EVERY $4 donation = 1hot, nutritious home-delivered meal
Please donate now and help us continue to feed our senior neighbors.
Watch Tisha Powell, of Eyewitness News 11, explain how Meals on Wheels of Wake County helps our senior neighbors in need and meet one of our wonderful clients.
