2023 Beloit Meals On Wheels Annual Report

A knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a homebound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and connection that will completely make their day.

A knock can even save lives. Beloit Meals On Wheels had another remarkable year because of our community of caring supporters and army of dedicated volunteers.

We continue to see growth in our program and are proud to be able to serve our at-risk seniors for over half a century. As we move through this next year, we will stay focused on our mission of providing healthy meals, human connections, and community resources to further open doors to identify and serve more underserved and unserved seniors living in Beloit.
