Meals On Wheels

Delivers meals to seniors and others in need


Posted in Elderly and Aging, Food Programs


SHARE is not a charity, but a community-based food program that offers quality groceries (not surplus or donated food) at a savings of 50 to 60%. Share does this by buying in bulk and using volunteers to sort and distribute the food. Share is not based on income, so anyone can participate. Users choose meats and other foods from monthly selections. Share asks that users donate 2 hours of community service in return. Share is available in many, but not all areas. If the program is not in your area, you may organize a group and pick up your boxes by pickup truck load. Buy as many boxes as you want. Prices are about $18.00 per box and up, varying by state. Below is a list of areas and links where Share is available, but these are constantly expanding.
