We enrich the lives of seniors, and assist them in maintaining independence, by providing nutritious food, human connections and social support. We also use our expertise and capacity to serve other nutritionally at-risk populations.
Bottom Line for Portland
Meals on Wheels People serves and delivers 5,000 nutritious meals every weekday to older adults throughout the greater metropolitan area at neighborhood dining centers and to homebound elderly, which helps them to remain independent and living in their own homes.
“At the Standard, our culture of caring extends beyond our walls and into the community. I serve on the board of Meals on Wheels People, and I’m beginning a meal delivery route with one of my co-workers. Something as simple as a smile and a warm meal can make all the difference to a senior in isolation. This is important work, and I’m grateful to be a part of it.”
—Amy Malagamba, second vice president of corporate communications, the Standard; and Meals on Wheels People board member
