Meals on Wheels South Florida Volunteers continue to make sure our seniors’ meal deliveries continue amidst the COVID-19 crisis. They need your support to stay safe and to protect those they serve.
We are asking our loyal supporters to give to our special KN95 mask fund to be able to provide these masks to our volunteers. Any amount will help us protect our amazing volunteers and vulnerable older adults.

Meals on Wheels South Florida is concerned about what a significant outbreak of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in South Florida could mean for the vulnerable seniors we serve.
We are closely monitoring information and resources being shared by the experts in disease control and are putting prevention and response plans into place. We follow health officials' recommended steps to protect against coronavirus similarly to how we prevent the spread of other illnesses. All drivers, staff and volunteers are trained appropriately.
We know the critical importance of preparation in times like this and understand the delicate balance between panic and preparedness. While we do not anticipate a disruption in service at this time, our team will provide updates as necessary.
Our senior clients and the volunteers that serve them remain our utmost concern. It is our hope healthcare professionals will find a way to end this epidemic, but in the meantime, you can learn more by visiting the CDC and Administration for Community Living (ACL) websites below.
