Imagine if you were elderly, frail and with no family or close friends to help.  Imagine not having the strength to prepare your own meals or to go grocery shopping. Imagine if the only thing in your kitchen cabinet is saltine crackers and ramen noodles due to being on a fixed income that barely covers your rent and medications. Imagine feeling isolated and alone with a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. These are the issues facing many of our most vulnerable in our senior community. 

Now, Imagine an organization, Meals on Wheels of Mercer County, ready to serve older adults in our community; delivering the meals for participants' physical health; delivered by caring volunteers who nourish the soul by combatting social isolation. Imagine how you can help!
