Memorial Gifts “A Living Legacy”
It is hard to lose a loved one. A wonderful way to honor a special person is to give to charity in the name of the departed. If you are searching for a sustained gesture of remembrance, consider making an Memorial Donation to Meals on Wheels of Solano County, Inc. Meals on Wheels will send you a receipt for the gift, as well as send a card to the family informing them of your thoughtful and generous gift in memory of your relative, friend, colleague or neighbor.

Over 6 million seniors face the threat of hunger every year. The goal for many of our senior clients is to remain safely and independently living in their own home. This goal is becoming more difficult with diminishing resources and supportive services. Your contribution can mean the difference between a senior citizen receiving a balanced nutritious meal and going hungry. Adopt a senior and help us to ensure that:“No Senior Goes Hungry”

What it Costs Meals on Wheels to Prepare a Meal
Meals on Wheels of Solano County delivers over 800 meals every day to Solano County seniors in need. Each senior meal costs Meals on Wheels approximately $7.00 to prepare and deliver. For clients 60 and older, Meals on Wheels qualifies for partial reimbursement from the federal government under the Older Americans Act. We receive these funds under contract from the California Department of Aging. However, it is only a partial reimbursement and we must raise additional funds to cover the gap. Your charitable donation will go directly towards funding that gap.
