Meals on Wheels South Florida Funding Statement:
Meals on Wheels South Florida is funded under the Older Americans Act and Fair Share Dollars from local municipalities through State of Florida's Department of Elder Affairs and The Area Agency on Aging of Broward County. The generous support from The Jim Moran Foundation, Jewish Federation of Broward, United Way of Broward, the Children's Services Council, the cities of Tamarac and Pompano and Private Donations allows us to provide meals and services to those in most immediate need who would otherwise be placed on the ever-growing waiting list for home-delivered meals.
Serving South Florida's Seniors For Over 35 Years
All of our meals meet the USDA's recommended nutritional value for seniors. Healthy meals are vital to seniors who are on restricted diets and taking medication.
Home Meal Delivery
9 out of 10 Meals on Wheels recipients report that they feel more secure in their homes, where they want to be. Our volunteers are often the only person a senior will see during the week.
Congregate Dining Sites
Senior dining sites allow seniors to interact with one another, enjoy a nutritious meal and participate in numerous activities like silver sneakers, arts and crafts, and more.
