Meals on Wheels

The Resurrection Roller Girls recently donated $457 to help seniors in Sonoma County stay independent. This women's flat track roller derby recreational and competitive sporting league supports community events and fundraisers while promoting their athletes and the sport of Roller Derby. Each month the group selects a local charity to support and in July the Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels program was selected as recipient of the proceeds from their match.

These funds will be used to provide meals for homebound seniors in Sonoma County. Meals on Wheels delivers fresh meals to temporarily home-bound and chronically ill seniors. We serve over 215,000 meals to 1,650 seniors annually. In addition, ten dining sites provide 41,000 meals and companionship to 1,700 seniors annually. Therapeutic meals and nutritional counseling are also available.

for Sonoma County’s aging community by providing services that promote well-being and maintain independence. Some of our programs are funded in part by the Area Agency on Aging and others are
