Meals on Wheels Appeal
Generations’ Meals on Wheels program has acted as a safety net for over 40 years providing basic nutrition and care checks that enable them to remain at home all year and enjoy the holiday season. But we need your help!
• Nutrition funding has been cut drastically.
• The elderly population is the largest in history, many living below the poverty level.
• 1 out of 9 people in our community have food insecurities.
You can make a difference, right here, where you live, for your neighbors! Any amount is appreciated and your gift stays here and helps to ensure that no homebound senior has to go on a wait list for meals.
Please mail your tax-deductible donation today to Generations, P.O. Box 314, Vincennes, IN 47591. Thank you.
While good nutrition is essential to health, many older adults begin to neglect their diets when shopping, cooking and cleaning become more difficult, or when dietary problems restrict their food choices.
Thanks to Meals on Wheels, hundreds of older adults and individuals with disabilities receive the nutrition they need, when they need it. And the program delivers more than an affordable meal that’s hot, tasty and nutritious — it also serves as a safety check and an important outside link should a problem arise for the client.
Meals are funded by state and federal funds for clients who meet specific qualifications. Other clients donate according to their income.
