When you hunger to make a difference.
One meal. Delivered by a compassionate volunteer. Every day. These three critical elements have proven year after year to transform the health and well being of the people we serve.
Our clients eat better. They feel better. They stay in their homes, living with dignity and respect. They are happier, and they are not isolated. And most importantly, they remain strong and healthy, not allowing disease or illness to take their spirit away.
Because we do not receive state or federal funding, we rely on the generosity of people like you to help keep our wheels turning. We are committed to ending hunger and suffering in our city. We invite you to join us.
Your one-time gift is special and important. Donors like you help fuel our programs and have a direct impact on those we serve. Thank you for partnering with Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque.
Our Cornerstone Club is a recurring giving program that allows you to give each month, each quarter or each year. Join our Cornerstone Club today and for as little at $10 a month, you can have continued impact on the work we are doing every day.
