Meals on Wheels

April 17, 2019

Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa is a California Nonprofit Corporation recognized as a charitable organization under Section 501c(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Fed Tax ID 68·0231350 . They subsidize over 415,000 nutritious meals annually, delivered to frail, nutritionally at-risk home bound elders in their residences in Contra Costa County. They are the only agency in our county providing meals delivered to home bound elders served by the countywide Meals on Wheels Program.

The average Meals on Wheels participant in Contra Costa County is 80 years old, lives alone or with a co-dependent spouse, and has one or more chronic health conditions that prevents them from preparing or shopping for nutritious daily meals.  Most live below the Bay Area basic low income standards and many must choose among paying for food, medicines, rent or utilities.

Meals are delivered by volunteers five days per week before noon, and frozen meals are available for weekends. Each meal exceeds one-third of the recommended dietary allowance for older adults, and is individually packaged hot or cold, depending on the menu item. Weekly deliveries of seven frozen meals may be offered as an alternative when space is unavailable on hot meals routes.
