At Meals on Wheels OC, we work to keep our wheels turning to nourish and provide meaningful connections for our elderly neighbors. Although the wheels are important, the engine makes them turn. And YOUR LOVE is the engine that propels us forward. Because of YOU, we have been able to serve more than double the number of seniors in need. So let’s take a quick look “Behind the Wheel” to celebrate the lives you’ve helped to change over the past fiscal year (July 2021-June 2022).
Because of YOU, Meals on Wheels Orange County was able to maneuver at the onset of the pandemic, moving from in-person lunches to Grab-and-Go meals and now a combination of the two.
Because of YOU, our team steered smoothly through the exponential increase in need, doubling the number of meals we served from one million to two million annually.
Because of YOU, the 15,303 older adults we served reported improved overall health, increased independence, and were able to remain in the homes they love.
And because of YOU, we’ve been able to drive innovation to increase menu options that provide choice for seniors who face fewer life choices as they age.
Thank you for being the engine that drives our wheels!
