Meals on Wheels provides the ability for seniors to remain in their homes and get a nutritous meal, friendly visit and safety check. This also helps them cope with three of the biggest threats against aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence. Research proves that when seniors have the right support, they gain a greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays, and live longer.

Funding for the meal program is partially funded by a State of Alaska grant, but it is the community’s support and participant donations that make this program such a huge success.
Remember your generous donations help this program remain a success.
