Pet Food Program

Man with dogOur Pet Food Program calls attention to the importance of pets to the well-being of home bound older adults. Helping keep these companion pets – dear friends of our participants – well fed, healthy and part of the family for as long as possible is the motivating factor behind this program. The Pet Food Program began in 2008 with a $1,000 grant from the Season of Suppers campaign. Today, it continues with funding through grants from Meals on Wheels America and community support.
