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.
