Client meal contribution
WHAT IS THE COST?
Meals on Wheels of Solano County provide over 800 meals per day to seniors in need. It costs approximately $7.00 to prepare and deliver food to recipients of the program. For clients aged 60 and older, Meals on Wheels of Solano County qualifies for partial reimbursement from the federal government under the Older Americans Act.
Funds are received under contract from the Napa/Solano Area Agency on Aging - however, it is only partial reimbursement, and Meals on Wheels of Solano County must raise additional funds to cover the remaining costs.
WHAT ARE CONTRIBUTIONS?
Meals on Wheels of Solano County's services are cost-free to eligible seniors. It is suggested that each client provide a contribution of $4.00 per meal, $20.00 per week, or $80.00 per month, or what they are able to afford. No client will be denied services if a contribution cannot be made.
HOW CAN I MAKE MY CONTRIBUTIONS?
Each month, Home Delivery recipients will receive a self-addressed envelope where they can submit their contributions via mail. If a client would like to make a contribution online, they can do so through our Online Contributions Portal. Contribution boxes are also located at all of our congregate dining sites.
Please note that each client's contribution is voluntary and confidential. Seniors will not be denied a meal based on ability or inability to contribute. However, the more funds raised, the more seniors in need can participate in our services.
