Public Policy

When we take action together, meaningful impacts can be made. These impacts can include how many of our nation's seniors will get a meal and a friendly visit at their door today, as well as influencing the policies needed to make that possible. The need for us all to step up to take action has never been greater and there is no better time to speak up than now.

It’s important that we take action to show how vital programs like Meals on Wheels are to our seniors and communities across the country.
