They may be your neighbor, your teacher in high school, the guy who fixed your first car, or even a family member. They are seniors who contribute so much to our community but because they are now homebound and isolated, they have become the hidden hungry. Meals on Wheels Diablo Region delivers enough food for one meal a day, but for so many of the seniors we serve, one meal isn’t enough.
During the month of February, MOW Diablo Region has launched the Feed the Soul campaign to raise $28,000 in 28 days! Your donation will help us provide 4,600 breakfast bags to our most vulnerable seniors.
We know the meal we deliver is sometimes the only meal a senior will eat all day. We also know that many seniors divide the meal so they will have something for lunch, dinner, and something left at night to take with medications. A breakfast bag from MOW Diablo Region provides additional food to get them through the day, such as fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, string cheese, hard-boiled eggs, coffee, and tea.
Our senior neighbors, who contribute so much to our communities, should not have to ration food! Please join our sponsors, NBC Bay Area, Telemundo 48, Chevron, CSAA Insurance Group, and Mt. Diablo Resource Recovery in helping Meals on Wheels Diablo Region prevent hunger in vulnerable seniors by making a donation today through Feb. 28th to the Feed the Soul Campaign.
