Until the Week of Giving
For over 50 years Chico Meals on Wheels has served our communities most vulnerable population, the elderly, sick and disabled. We expanded our delivery area to Paradise and Magalia to help after the Camp Fire and since the Covid restrictions were put in place the number of clients and meals have more than doubled. We have added more drivers, vehicles and routes to meet this demand but we need your help. We are a volunteer run organization that will deliver over 50,000 meals to your neighbors and family. It costs $4.93 to deliver each meal and every dollar of your donation goes directly to getting those meals delivered. We can provide a senior with Meals on Wheels for one year for roughly the same cost as one day in the hospital.
Thank you for your support.
Chico Meals on Wheels was founded to provide hot, nutritious, dietetically correct, home delivered meals daily to the elderly, infirmed and disabled. Keeping seniors in their homes, in familiar surroundings, where they feel in control of their lives, contributes to independence and good mental attitude; this is also true of the disabled and those recovering from serious illness. Without this meal service, many clients would have to enter a care facility.
