Prescott Meals on Wheels

Starting December 1st, for every purchase you make at Olsen’s Prescott store, you can tell our team to “Round-Up” your purchase and donate the difference to the Prescott Area Meals on Wheels. At the end of December, Olsen’s Grain will make a matching donation of all funds collected to present to the agency. We are pleased to participate in this program for the 3rd year in a row. Did you know that part of the Prescott Meals on Wheels program includes the AniMeals program?  The Animeals program consists of donated cat and dog food for homebound clients. If an individual can not get the store to by themselves food, they can not do for the loved family pets. Only in-kind donations of food is accepted to support this program.

About Prescott Meals on Wheels

Prescott Meals On Wheels provides services that enable older people to maintain independent living with safety and dignity.
 
The service agency’s mission is to provide one hot nourishing meal per day, both in a congregate setting and to homebound clients.  Patrons are served cafeteria style by volunteer staff from 11:15 am to 12:45 pm Monday through Friday.  Volunteers use their own vehicles to deliver the homebound meals. This program also supplies meals to participants pets! Many times participants will choose to feed their meal to their pets. All proceeds from your round-up will also go towards donations of pet food in addition to meals, for Meals on Wheels participants who won pets. 
 
Prescott Meals on Wheels also has a further mission of responding to the needs and concerns of clients as perceived by those who deliver meals and others in the organization who have contact with the group’s clients.
 
Understanding Senior Hunger

Hunger is a serious threat facing millions of seniors in the United States. Understanding hunger is a critical first step to developing strategies to eliminate the pain and suffering it causes.

When you’re considering your charitable giving during the Holidays and at year-end, please consider joining the “Round Up” at Olsen’s Prescott store for a very worthy cause.
