Right now, 8.3 million seniors experience food insecurity in the U.S., and by 2025, it is estimated that this number will grow to 9.5 million.


Enter Meals on Wheels, a nationwide program that delivers meals to the elderly, homebound and disabled.

In Douglas County, more than 140 people receive meals from this program and similar programs take place in Osakis, Glenwood, Hoffman and Parkers Prairie.
