The numbers are alarming. One in nine seniors – five million people – is facing the threat of hunger every day, according to the Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA). It is projecting that 75% more seniors will be facing the threat of hunger by 2025.
MOWAA represents local senior nutrition programs in urban, suburban and rural communities in every state in America. Through some 5,000 independently run and operated meal delivery and congregate meal programs, MOWAA volunteers deliver more than one million nutritious meals per day to hundreds of thousands of seniors nationwide.
In an effort to combat this growing problem MOWAA and Bridgestone Retail Operations, (BSRO), have just announced a national partnership.
