We are committed to serving all those who are homebound and in need of home-delivered meals, regardless of their ability to pay. And that’s where you come in…
Over the course of one year, Meals on Wheels of Virginia Beach volunteers typically deliver more than 110,000 meals. If they are able to pay in full, our clients pay $140 for the month’s meals. However, about 45% of those who receive meals cannot afford to pay the entire cost, and about 28% need full sponsorship.
All of us working together can make this happen.
