Why the Fork? Because you can help keep the Meals on Wheels vans rolling!
Growing up, I think Meals on Wheels was the first non-profit I had ever heard of. I was certainly the most memorable for me, and I can’t recall why. Perhaps it they had commercials on Saturday mornings as I watched cartoons at my grandparents house in Spokane WA, or perhaps it was just the catchy name. (I liked, and still do pretty much anything that has wheels.)
Then and now, Meals on Wheels just makes sense to me. Here in King County, they use volunteers to deliver healthy, nutritious meals to more than 2,000 low-income seniors. This allows them to go on living independently in their own home for as long as they can.
A ‘Why the Fork’ grant from United Way of King County will allow Meals on Wheels to replace the aging freezers they use to stage thousands of meals that are delivered every week. Just one freezer failure can cause the loss of more than $7,000 worth of food, which happened back in 2009.
Please consider a gift to help Meals on Wheels and our other Why the Fork grantees, you can click here to give. Don’t forget, every donation through April 14th will be doubled thanks to a generous matching gift!
