Rating: 5 stars  

Alameda County Meals on Wheels (ACMOW) provides essential financial support to the various local meals on wheels providers in Alameda County by fundraising and outreach for meals on wheels. With a small but committed paid staff, this non-profit distributed over $500,000 to allow seniors in Alameda County to receive meals on wheels.
