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
We provide 5,000 nutritious meals ever weekday to older adults throughout the greater metropolitan area at neighborhood dining centers and as Meals on Wheels to homebound elderly. Nutritious meals are what allow frail, homebound seniors to remain independent and living in their own homes.
“At Nike, we are encouraged to volunteer. I choose Meals on Wheels People because the elderly are often forgotten. We’ll all be seniors one day, and thanks to Meals on Wheels People, we won’t be forgotten.” —David Moss, senior director of product development
