Support Meals on Wheels

Friendship Centers of Emmet County delivered the first Meals on Wheels in Emmet County on December 4, 1972. This year marks our 50th year of providing meals to homebound seniors!

Friendship Centers of Emmet County is celebrating by raising awareness and funds for senior hunger and giving local businesses that contribute so generously to the community an opportunity to support homebound seniors. Sponsor Meals on Wheels today! We could not do what we do, without the support of our community and we thank you!

Sponsor Today’s Meal With a donation of $500 your business can sponsor a meal on any day of your choosing. Your donation will be acknowledged with each meal given that day and on social media. You may also send a flyer or brochure to be handed out with meals. We would love to have a sponsor for each day in December.

Sponsor Today’s Fruit With a donation of $100 your business can sponsor a meal on any day of your choosing. Your donation will be acknowledged with each fruit given that day and on social media. We would love to have a sponsor for each day in December.

Friendship Centers currently serves an average of 750 hot, nutritional, meals per week to 140 homebound seniors. With your support, the Meals on Wheels program can continue to address food insecurity and malnutrition, combat social isolation, enable independence, and improve health for older adults.

Thank You! Our donors are appreciated as we work hand in hand to help senior citizens thrive. You will be recognized through Friendship Centers’ Facebook page, website, and Silver Threads newsletter.
