- Meals Delivered to Home Bound Seniors
For over 45 years, Meals on Wheels of Asheville Buncombe County has delivered meals to homebound seniors in our community every weekday.
One in six seniors is at risk for hunger. We provide meals to nearly 500 homebound seniors throughout Buncombe County. Without Meals on Wheels, many of these seniors would be left alone and hungry, and in jeopardy of losing their independence.
One in four seniors lives alone. Approximately 55% of the seniors we serve live alone. For many of them, our volunteers are the only people they see and interact with the entire day.
One in five seniors report feeling lonely. While most of us can’t imagine going a day without connecting with family and friends, there are numerous homebound seniors who are spending day after day alone.
