Whether its asking the community for support, or delivering a warm meal, there is no better feeling than helping a home-bound senior.

Review for Alameda County Meals on Wheels, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ACMOW is an essential organization - feeding 2000+ seniors everyday.

The organization has tremendous public support and runs very "lean."

For donors looking to get bang for their buck, ACMOW delivers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

There is no better feeling than hearing directly from seniors, or their children who rely on ACMOW's partner agencies, that the meals are a highlight of their day. Our drivers are a crucial lifeline for seniors and their families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I'd ensure that more people know of the work they do.
