March for Meals

The Good Food Store is honored to be the Platinum Sponsor for Missoula Aging Services March for Meals.

Meals on Wheels is a program that provides home-delivered meals and regular safety checks to homebound adults in Missoula County, enabling them to continue living independently. This program is a critical lifeline for many older adults who may be experiencing hunger and isolation. With the program's assistance, these individuals can receive the food and care they need to stay healthy and connected to their community.

The Missoula Aging Services Meals on Wheels program serves an average of 2,388 home-delivered meals per week within Missoula County, including surrounding areas like Lolo, Bonner, Clinton, Frenchtown, and Seeley Lake. This program has become increasingly important in recent years, with hunger and isolation becoming more prevalent issues. In fact, the program now serves 50% more people than before the pandemic, highlighting the vital role it plays in supporting the local community.

To achieve these goals, Meals on Wheels relies on the dedication of over 90 volunteer drivers and the financial support of businesses and members of the community. These volunteers ensure that the meals are delivered promptly and that the individuals receiving them are safe and well. Additionally, community support through donations and sponsorships ensures that the program can continue to provide these services to those in need.

In total, the Missoula Aging Services Meals on Wheels program expects to deliver 140,000 meals to homebound individuals this year, in addition to serving almost 40,000 community lunches at various locations throughout the county. These efforts are vital to ensuring that homebound adults in Missoula County have the support they need to live healthy, fulfilling lives.

This program is making a meaningful difference in the lives of those it serves.
