Your Gift Benefits Meals On Wheels

As our population ages, the number of people in need of meals continues to grow. Meals On Wheels is not covered by insurance, and although we are grateful for funding from the United Way and the Office of the Aging, we cannot rely solely upon these sources to meet the increasing demand for meals. Donor support is critical to keeping our seniors healthy and safe in their homes. Here’s how you can help: 

Purchase Meals to Relieve the Waiting List 

As federal funding continues to decrease, our waiting list for meals continues to grow. Your gift of $2,160 will take one person off the waiting list by purchasing enough meals for an entire year. 

Host an Event 

As an individual, corporation, business, or group, you can host an event and designate Meals On Wheels of Rochester and Monroe County as a beneficiary. Hosting an event is a wonderful opportunity for you to support seniors in need, while also receiving marketing exposure and valuable consumer contact. Your fundraising event can be a dinner, concert, fashion show, bowl-a-thon, wine tasting, restaurant promotion, art auction, food festival, silent auction at an existing event, or even a portion of proceeds of a sold item.  If you are interested in hosting or sponsoring an event to benefit for Meals On Wheels, contact Kate Whitman at 585.787.8714 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Fund Warmest Wishes

Each December, volunteers deliver holiday gift bags to our MOW participants most in need. For many, this is the only gift they will receive during the holiday season. Your gift of $1,000 will purchase 100 gift bags. 

Provide Meals to Hospice Families

Eating well is often the last thing on someone’s mind when they’re losing a family member. Your gift of $350 will feed five family members one meal a day for two weeks. 

Purchase Insulated Food Bags 

The delivery of frozen meals allows us to keep our participants well fed throughout the entire week. In order to do so, insulated food bags are critical. Your gift of $375 will purchase five bags.

Donate Your Car

Did you know that you can donate your used car, van, truck, boat with a trailer, or recreational vehicle to Meals On Wheels? Click here to learn more. 

Wrap a Delivery Van 

Help us spread Meals On Wheels awareness by giving one of our delivery vans a makeover. Businesses who donate $2,400 to sponsor a wrap will also receive advertising space on a van that travels daily throughout Monroe County. 

Gifts of all sizes are welcome and needed! Please help us in our mission to provide hot meals and warm smiles to those who depend on us by making your gift today.
