Aging gracefully is something that we all want to achieve.
We all deserve a just society where aging adults and those who care about them can lead their best lives. Now is YOUR CHANCE to give back to someone who has given so much to their community, and ensure that they have the same experience you would hope for yourself.

Meals on Wheels brings nutritious frozen meals directly to the homes of qualifying seniors who have difficulty shopping or preparing food. Our friendly staff and volunteers put care into their work: from the delivery drivers who know each customer by name to the customer service representative who gives personal attention while taking orders.
Watch the video below to see what it’s like to be a Sound Generations’ Meals on Wheels’ driver. Julian Montgomery speaks about the multiple roles he wears and the amazing friendships that have been built over the past six years.
Being a driver for our program is so much more than transporting meals. Julian sees himself as a therapist, counselor, friend, and a family member for his clients as well.
The most comprehensive non-profit in King County serving older adults, Sound Generations is a necessary and supportive entity to ensure seniors have access to basic necessities that improve their quality of life. Your support on #GivingTuesday and throughout the year sustains our work and helps ensure that we remain the important caring community for seniors that they need. While you’re thinking about what gifts to purchases, many seniors are worried about what their next meal will be.
Don’t believe us, read what our Meals on Wheels clients have to say:
“I don’t cook anymore and it’s hard to get to the store. I have arthritis, asthma, and diabetes which limits my ability to get food. MOW changed my life. I’m extremely grateful.“
“We have been using your services for a few years and I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this service being available. I work full-time so it’s a challenge to get Mom to her appointments but this service allows me to reduce the hours I have to be away from my job. Mom really enjoys the social interaction with the drivers.“
Help us maintain vital services for older adults and launch into 2020 with the strongest possible start!

Only three days left to secure your early bird ticket to our upcoming Golden Gala: Unmasking the Future of Aging Dinner & Auction.
Linda Evans, aging and women’s activist has just been confirmed as the Keynote. She is excited to help us raise funds to ensure we can increase food security, maintain wraparound programming to age in place, and reduce isolation. She will eloquently share her personal wisdom in this keynote. Using her own life experiences, Linda will share compelling stories to captivate your heart and mind bringing insight, hope, healing and inspiration in a culture that does not revere aging. She is most well known for her portrayal of Krystle Carrington on Dynasty. Most recently she has become a huge supporter of Meals on Wheels partnering with NFESH to end senior hunger.
Come out and have fun while helping us celebrate 50 plus years of providing comprehensive and accessible services so all people have the support they need on their aging journey in King County. Together we can unmask the future of aging by harnessing the power of community to ensure that none of our neighbors are hungry, neglected, or isolated—now and in the future!
