DB Services has chosen to support Meals on Wheels in quarter 1 of 2023 with our Surveys for Success program. Meals on Wheels, with the support of community volunteers, delivers meals to individuals whose diminished mobility makes it challenging for them to shop for food or prepare meals. The Surveys for Success program is our way of saying thank you for our customers’ valuable feedback by paying it forward to those in need.
Meals on Wheels was started in 1954 by a small group of Philadelphia citizens and has grown into one of the largest and most effective social movements in America. To this day, their goal remains the same: to support our senior neighbors to extend their independence and health as they age. Their large network of programs currently serves nearly 2.4 million seniors annually in virtually every community in the country.
Hunger and poverty are not the only challenges that Meals on Wheels programs aim to address. Isolation is another serious issue plaguing senior citizens, with 58% of meal recipients stating that the person delivering their meal is the only person they will see that day. Home-delivered meals also help keep an estimated 8 out of 10 recipients who have previously fallen from falling again. Many seniors want to continue living independently for as long as they can, and Meals on Wheels runs effective programs to assist them in doing just that.
Each customer survey we receive is an additional donation towards Meals on Wheels. Your feedback will not only help our team at DB Services, but also provide Meals on Wheels with donations to further their important mission. Together we can help improve the lives of those in our communities who need it the most!
