The Adopt-A-Route program provides an excellent way for companies and organizations to engage in the community by delivering a midday meal to homebound older adults in our community.  Please consider Adopting-A-Route to deliver a difference to older adults. We can’t do it alone!

Because 1 in 8 seniors in MO face hunger and social isolation…We deliver meals to 2,900 home bound seniors in St. Louis, St. Charles, Franklin and Jefferson counties.

Because older adults are at higher risk of going hungry…We deliver meals to help ensure they are not forgotten.

Because the number of Missourians aged 65+ is rapidly increasing and funding to support them has not increased with the demand…We deliver opportunities for communities to help us.

Because employees are, more than ever, interested in working for companies that care about giving back to their communities…We deliver our Adopt-A-Route program.
