It costs nearly $7 per meal to provide Meals on Wheels to homebound elderly.  In 2017, the LOA served 129,740 meals to 848 persons.   These numbers continue to decrease due to budget contraints.


It costs over $20 per person, per day, for meals at the Diner's Club sites and for transportation to and from the sites so seniors can have nutrition and socialization.  In 2017, the LOA served 9,924 meals to 233 persons.  Demand for this service is increasing but funding is not.
