To be 100 years-old and able to live
in your own home -- Priceless!

Meet Lena. She is 100 years old and loves Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa. "Without them [the daily delivered meals], I wouldn’t be able to stay at home. So I’m very happy. I get to meet wonderful people who bring my food. You can’t have anything nicer than that. There’s no place like home, so when you can stay in your own home, you are very fortunate.”
Thank you for supporting
our frail homebound seniors!


Concerns regarding our Frail Homebound
Meals on Wheels clients in Contra Costa

As reported recently in The New York Times California addition, "As the widespread outages in the state continued for a second day, fears grew for sick and older residents and those who rely on medical equipment." All of us at Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa are keeping a close watch over our frail homebound seniors providing a daily check-in from a volunteer meal delivery driver and providing shelf-stable food for emergencies. We hope outages will not prevail but we are prepared to make sure our seniors don't go hungry.


Please donate to Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa, so no frail homebound elder goes hungry or feels isolated.
