Our kitchen staff prepares 7,700 meals weekly to be delivered to homebound seniors.

Currently more than 800 individuals are on our waiting list to receive services.

Each driver travels 4,000 a month, the cost of gas greatly effects our ability to keep up with demand

Meals On Wheels is an integrated & comprehensive program that offers nutritionally-balanced meals, dietary consultation and overall support.

Meals on Wheels is a vital service to more than 1,100 homebound seniors who would not otherwise have access to healthy meals, nutritional supplements, and, in some cases, medical equipment and pet food for their loyal companions. It is the only program of its kind in Las Vegas that is offered at no charge to the client.

One of our Meals on Wheels delivery drivers noticed that one of his clients did not have a kitchen table. On his next visit, he brought her a donated table with four chairs and spent his lunch break with her. Almost in tears, she asked if he would take back the other three chairs. She said she did not want to be reminded that she had to eat alone. Now when time permits, he schedules his break during her stop and she is overjoyed to have the company.

The need is greater than ever. Our waiting list for our services is at an all time high with more than 800 people in need of home delivered meals. And, increasing costs like gas prices threaten our services.

Everyone working together can make a huge impact. Give today.
