How We Help
Senior citizens aged 60 or better who are not able to care for themselves is the population we provide meals for. The average Meals on Wheels participant in Contra Costa County is 80 years old, lives alone or with a co-dependent spouse, and has one or more chronic health conditions that prevent them from preparing or shopping for nutritious daily meals. Most live below the Bay Area's basic low-income standards, and many must choose between paying for food, medicines, rent, or utilities with their meager resources. Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa must find the community resources to meet this rapidly growing need.
Thanks to generous contributions we receive from individuals like you, as well as gifts from charitable organizations, we are able to subsidize over 1.5 million nutritious meals annually; delivered to frail, nutritionally at-risk homebound elders in their residences in Contra Costa County.
Volunteers are the backbone of Meals on Wheels. Many volunteer opportunities exist. There is a continual need for drivers on over 90 local routes.
Meals on Wheels serves homebound seniors 60 or older who are no longer able to prepare their own meals. Read more about eligibility and services.
