Support your local
Meals on Wheels program!
Hundreds of our senior neighbors across Skagit County are experiencing hunger and isolation every day. Fortunately, donations from our generous community and the work of dedicated volunteers make the Meals on Wheels Program possible for those 60 and older.
Each week, volunteers deliver more than 2600 meals to 425 homebound seniors
Having a hot and nutritious meal delivered by a caring volunteer helps maintain good health while providing friendship and peace of mind to the recipient and their family.
Another important benefit is the daily wellness check, which ensures that there are no immediate health or safety issues in the home, especially during the colder winter months.
“The volunteers are so precious. They don’t have to volunteer but they know the value of giving. The volunteers for Meals on Wheels should be shown appreciation for their time and energy to help this community in a wonderful way. I certainly am nourished and uplifted by their diligent effort. Thank you from my heart! ”

WITH COVID-19 HERE THE FUTURE HAS NEVER FELT SO UNPREDICTABLE.
Seniors are the age group most at risk and it is more important than ever to support them by ensuring low-barrier, easy access to nutritious meals. Volunteer drivers bring meals to our seniors five days a week.
The cost of meals is covered by several sources, with community donations playing a huge and indispensable part.
AS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION, WE RELY ON MANY SOURCES OF REVENUE TO PROVIDE SERVICES.
All donations go directly to the Skagit Council on Aging (SCOA)—Skagit County Meals on Wheels' funding agency.
