How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We are addressing the nutritional needs of people under sixty who are battling a critical
illness. Meals on Wheels' focus is seniors age sixty and above. However, we do
provide service to seniors who have a critical illness, special dietary needs and restrictions that cannot be addressed by Meals on Wheels.

Since our inception in 1993 we have prepared and home-delivered over 1,2 million meals to clients who would not have been able to eat without our assistance.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Our goal is to enhance our clients' sense of well-being with lovingly prepared meals.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    We provide meals for seven days a week which are most often custom tailored to our clients' nutritional needs and sensitivities (such as dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian, etc.)
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Meals are freshly prepared and delivered to our clients' homes. We provide meals for four to seven days of the week (as needed by each individual client).
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We know we are making progress in that we are able to continue to:

    - Accommodate our clients' specific dietary needs and restrictions,

    - Take in clients without having to put them on a waiting list,

    - Consistently make modifications to the meals any given client will receive,

    - Receive positive and constructive feedback from our clients.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have expanded our delivery area from one to all nine counties in the San Francisco Bay Area and continue to meet our mission and our goals.
