About The Suggested Donation:
• We ask that each client give a suggested contribution of $3.00 per meal. If you cannot afford the $3.00, please give what you can afford to based on your income and ability to pay.
• Each month Home-Delivery clients receive a self-addressed envelope. We ask that clients send us a check in the envelope provided; please do not send cash. Make the check payable to “Meals on Wheels.” Or you can download and print the Donation Form and send that in with your contribution.
• There are contribution boxes located at all of the Congregate Dining Sites.
• Each client’s contribution is voluntary and confidential. Seniors will NOT be denied a meal based on inability to contribute. However, the more funds raised, the more seniors we can feed, especially those in need.
What it Costs Meals on Wheels to Prepare a Meal
Meals on Wheels of Solano County delivers over 600 meals every day to Solano County seniors in need. Each senior meal costs Meals on Wheels approximately $3.90 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 Area Agency on 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.Share this page:
