You can ensure no local senior goes hungry this winter by helping Meals on Wheels and More provide emergency meals to more than 400 vulnerable older adults throughout Whatcom County. Every $20 donation will provide a 3-day supply of shelf-stable emergency meals for one homebound senior. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic the demand for Meals on Wheels by local seniors dramatically increased and remains high. The program is on track to deliver approximately 45% more meals in Whatcom County this year than in 2019!
Emergency Meal donations can be mailed to Meals on Wheels and More at 315 Halleck Street, Bellingham, WA, or made online at https://whatcomcoa.org/donate.This fundraiser replaces Meals on Wheels and More’s annual Share the Love “Stuff the Trunk” event held at Whatcom County Haggen Stores in partnership with Dewey Griffin Subaru.
The Bellingham Senior Activity Center will be closed until further notice.
In support of the health and safety of our community, the Bellingham Senior Activity Center is closed until further notice. All Meals on Wheels clients will receive deliveries as scheduled. If you would like to pick up meals through the Senior Community Meals program, a weeks worth of meals will be distributed each Wednesday from 11:30am-12:30pm. If you are 60 and over and cannot get to the BSAC to pick-up meals, and you are in need of home delivered meals, call 360-746-6480. Click the button below for more info:
