Did you know that Lackawanna County has one of the highest concentrations of older people in the nation with twice the national average? Many of these elderly members of our community are disabled and unable to prepare meals for themselves.
Meals on Wheels of NEPA have dedicated their efforts to provide meals for these members of our community and make sure they are filling their bodies with the proper nutrition. This amazing organization has been doing this since 1969 by delivering hot, well-rounded meals to their homes along with a volunteer to provide them with some company for the day.
The organization aims to provide relief from hunger for the elderly and disabled, decrease the onset of disease with good nutrition and increase home-based support to delay or prevent expensive institutional care. We are on a mission to support Meals on Wheels of NEPA and the 800 daily clients they provide meals and make lives easier for.
