“We Are Meals On Wheels is more than a national campaign – it is a declaration of who we are and what we do. We are 5,000 Senior Nutrition Programs, supported by 1.7 million volunteers, who deliver more than 1 million meals a day to our nation’s homebound seniors.” As MOWAA embarks on a new endeavor to raise greater awareness of senior hunger in America, we urge you to take a moment to familiarize yourself with the We Are Meals On Wheels campaign and learn how you, too, can become involved and receive a grant award for your effort
Two Things You Can Do Right Now:
1. Help spread the We Are Meals On Wheels campaign in your community by sharing information with everyone you know through your website, Facebook and any other social media channels you use. This can encourage your community to join us, so together we can make sure no senior goes hungry.
And an alarming number are suffering from hunger, and suffering in silence, behind closed doors. But a solution is within reach – YOU are the answer. In honor of an elder – an older person who has made or makes a difference in your life, please share this video to spread awareness and help us bring an end to senior hunger. One in nine Americans over the age of 60 faces the threat of hunger. This is unacceptable, especially in one of the wealthiest nations in the world. But this is also one issue that can be solved – and YOU are the answer.
Please share this video to spread awareness and help us bring an end to senior hunger. $7.00 – is the average cost for a nutritious home-delivered meal. The cost of a ONE-YEAR supply of home-delivered meals is roughly equal to the cost of ONE DAY in a hospital. In this troubled economy, we must seek solutions that make sense… Please support our movement by sharing this video with at least seven people. With your help, a day when no senior goes hungry is possible. Please share this inspiring video today. All it takes is a few moments to help raise awareness about our nation’s hungry seniors.
2. In order to share our mission with America we also created the We Are Meals On Wheels Toolkit, which is available to every MOWAA Member at no cost. This Toolkit, designed exclusively for Senior Nutrition Programs, is a collection of television, print and radio Public Service Announcements (PSAs), media-securing strategies, press releases and various other valuable resources that you can begin using immediately.

More information about this grant opportunity will be released soon.
