Meals on Wheels’ volunteers deliver daily hot meals to homebound seniors around our area. Perhaps equally important, they “check-in” with participants to make sure they are safe and healthy.

During November, Bham Now and United Way of Central Alabama will highlight ways you can get involved with Meals on Wheels.  

Once you complete the survey you’ll be automatically entered to win.

Meals on Wheels (MOW) serves qualified seniors in Jefferson County age 60 or older who are homebound, meaning they can’t leave their home to get groceries or  go shopping.

Working with hundreds of volunteers, Monday through Friday, MOW provides food and companionship to seniors at their homes.  If there is anything amiss, such as someone has fallen or has health issues, a Meals on Wheels volunteer will help the senior get assistance and connect them with their family.

Meals on Wheels can’t miss a day.  Seniors not only need meals, but are also often socially isolated from family and friends.  Volunteers provide precious human contact.

According to Feeding America, one in 12 people age 60 or older is food insecure sometime during the year.

Meals on Wheels in Jefferson County needs volunteers and financial support.  Please click here to learn more or donate now.

Working with Meals on Wheels  is incredibly meaningful. (I believe) we are judged on how we treat the most vulnerable in our society, especially children or  elders. It is important we make sure they are cared for and loved. That is what Meals on Wheels does everyday for our seniors.
