Metro Meals on Wheels

A nonprofit organization

In 2023, Meals on Wheels programs in the Twin Cities served nearly 1.8 million meals to 10,300 individuals. The need continues to grow as inflation takes a toll. Seniors on fixed incomes are struggling with the increased costs of food, bills, and medication. They also feel isolated, and COVID-19 continues to pose the biggest threat to vulnerable older adults.

They depend on their community to get by, and every day more individuals are reaching out for help. 

Meals on Wheels programs are working hard to ensure that everyone who needs assistance gets hot, fresh meals while volunteers provide consistent check-ins that help seniors feel less lonely. You can support these vital efforts with a donation. Your gift will ensure that our older neighbors receive the meals and friendship they need this holiday season. 

I probably would not be able to stay in my home if not for Meals on Wheels. I’m just not able to cook anymore. I appreciate pleasant people coming to the door and bringing me a meal that I can eat.”  - Char, Minneapolis Meal Recipient

Your donation will provide much-needed nutritious meals. Additionally, volunteer visits can save lives and help seniors stay in their homes when they have nowhere else to go. Marsha’s story illustrates the importance of a daily check-in.
