Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa
Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa is a charitable nonprofit coalition of the public agencies, non-profit organizations, and senior citizen advisory groups involved in providing healthy meals to frail homebound elders in Contra Costa County who have challenges that prevent them from preparing nutritious daily meals for themselves. Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa was founded in 1990 with the goal to bridge the gap between the ever-increasing number of elders in need of Meals on Wheels in our county and insufficient government funding for these services.
Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa is the fundraising body of the countywide Meals on Wheels Program. The Contra Costa County Public Health Department administers the Meals on Wheels program and contracts with three private non-profit organizations regionally who coordinate day-to-day service delivery. Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa is tasked with raising the community resources needed to subsidize the meals and delivery costs for the program. We are the only organization in our county raising funds to provide the meals delivered to homebound elders served by this countywide program.
Thanks to generous contributions we receive from individuals, as well as gifts from charitable organizations, we can subsidize approximately 50% of the nutritious meals provided annually. These meals are delivered to frail, nutritionally at-risk homebound elders in their residences throughout Contra Costa County.
