We succeed because of your generous donations
The Older Americans Act Nutrition Program (OAA) helps us subsidize our meals for clients that don’t receive Medicaid, but it doesn’t fully cover the total cost of a meal. Even before the pandemic, our clients on small fixed incomes struggled to contribute the full amount of their meal costs. If a client is older than 60 and struggles to shop or cook for themselves, we continue to serve them even if they can not afford to contribute. Your donation helps us make up this difference.
Nutrition is so important for older adults – it’s the key predictor of both frailty and sarcopenia (muscle loss). The gift of a healthy meal could even prevent a future injury or fall.
Unprecedented program growth has created a shortage of OAA Nutrition Program funds for Eastside Meals on Wheels. While there is bipartisan support for increased funding, legislators have been unable to agree on a budget, tabling any adjustment.
