03/2014
8.8 million of America's seniors — or nearly 1 in 6 — may not know where their next meal is coming from.
 Programs like
Meals on Wheels
 are critical to solving this national crisis. The nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks delivered each day are often all it takes to enable our seniors to live independently in their own homes. And, when they do, we all save billions of tax dollars in avoided hospital, health care and nursing home costs.
Investing in Meals on Wheels is a win-win.
