Meals on Wheels Keeps Seniors Healthy at Home

For seniors throughout Central Maryland, we do more than deliver nutritious meals. We provide support and safety-net services that help sustain health, promote independence, maintain economic stability, and improve overall quality of life.

Meals Produced, Packed and Delivered (3/17/20-1/6/21)

Fresh Meals, Better Health, Economic Stability
Delivered with Care

When you combine good healthcare with proper nutrition, personal interaction, and shared communications, seniors are happier, healthier, and better able to manage their unique health needs.
  • In 2014, 10.2 million older Americans faced the threat of hunger. Unsure whether their food will last through the month, many homebound seniors have to choose between purchasing food and buying medicine or making important home repairs.
  • More and more, studies show the impact of social isolation, food insecurity, and poverty on overall health. Of the nearly 3,000 older adults we serve annually, 75% live at or below the poverty line.
  • That’s where Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland comes in!

Meal Delivery Status

Any change in status to the meal delivery schedule will be posted here. Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland provides critical services for an extremely vulnerable population. Therefore, it is important that we make every effort to continue to provide services while also maintaining a work environment that is safe for staff and volunteers.
