Project Description

Aging True operates Duval County's Meals on Wheels program, in association with Meals on Wheels America.

Every weekday, over 800 seniors receive a hot meal that was made fresh that day. Our kitchen starts cooking at 1:00 AM in order to have meals ready for seniors by 8:00 AM. An army of volunteers and staff drivers then deliver the meals to clients throughout Jacksonville.

A fresh meal provides a nutritional boost to seniors who may have trouble opening packages or cans, are disabled, or are otherwise financially unable to buy fresh food. Our drivers (volunteer and staff) also provide a daily safety check and much-needed socialization to our senior clients; many times, they build relationships and take a personal interest in the senior's lifestyle.

With an increase in funding, we can take seniors off the wait-list of over 900 names and start providing them with the meal, and security, that only our Meals on Wheels program can provide. Please donate now to support a senior in your community!
