What You'll Get

The Issue: Food Insecurity Among Homebound People

Among the homebound clients of Coal Creek Meals on Wheels, more than 95% cannot afford the full cost of the daily meal services, and approximately 7% cannot afford any extra money for food, even on a sliding scale. In addition to high medical bills, housing expenses, and a lack of transportation, food insecurity is one of the central struggles faced by these low-income clients, who tend to be elderly, disabled, or chronically ill. However, bringing them a nutritious, well-balanced meal every day can help them maintain good health and remain self sufficient in their homes.

The Campaign: Delivering Meals to Homebound People

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Coal Creek Meals on Wheels to provide hot, nutritious meals for elderly and disabled homebound clients. For every $50 raised, the organization will be able to provide one month of nutritious meals for one individual who cannot otherwise afford the cost of food. By having meals delivered daily, homebound clients in Lafayette, Louisville, Erie, and Superior can maintain a healthy diet while enjoying daily visits and friendly conversation.

100% of donations go directly to Coal Creek Meals on Wheels. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

About Coal Creek Meals on Wheels

By 7 a.m. each day, the kitchen staff at Coal Creek Meals on Wheels is already hard at work preparing the day's meals. Along with the typical daily meal based on protein, vegetables, and starch, plus bread, fruit, and a freshly baked dessert, the crew also makes several dozen specialized meals each day to accommodate special dietary needs and restrictions. Volunteers chip in around 9 a.m. to bag and package the food, and when the volunteer drivers arrive at 11 a.m., the food is ready for delivery. But the volunteer drivers do more than just deliver hot meals to the organization's homebound elderly, disabled, or ill clients—they also serve as friendly visitors, providing wellness check-ins in addition to hot, nutritious meals. Coal Creek Meals on Wheels has seen a 16% increase in clients since 2010, and its volunteers delivered more than 16,000 meals in 2012.
