Hanlees Subaru Supports Meals On Wheels of Solano County

Hanlees Napa Subaru is happy to support Meals On Wheels of Solano County. May no senior go hungry.

A statement from Executive Director Cathy Hall

"Meals On Wheels of Solano County's mission is to nourish and enrich the lives of seniors in Solano County with an emphasis on those ages 60 and older, by providing nutritious meals to active and home-bound people; thereby promoting their health, well being and independence. 

Meals on Wheels of Solano County has been delivering meals to home-bound seniors in Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun, Vacaville and Vallejo since 1977. Today over 600 meals are prepared fresh and packaged for home delivery or delivery to our congregate sites on a daily basis. 

The chief purpose of our organization is to serve senior clients, 60 years of age or older and who are frail or considered at-risk. Many of our clients rely on our program to provide their one healthy, substantial meal of the day. By providing a nutritious meal on a daily basis we are able to aid in the reduction of senior malnutrition, food insecurity and promote senior independence and socialization. 

We are partially funded through the Older Americans Act. We are required to maintain an accountable and highly monitored food program. We are proud to serve nourishing and good tasting food. We are not able to accept food donations."
