Seniors receiving Meals on Wheels sometimes struggle to feed their companion animals. aniMeals on Wheels was started to make sure that our seniors get all the nutrition they need by not feeling that they have no choice but to share their food with their beloved pets. An added bonus is that, in getting pet food to them, their sweet companions are also getting food that is better for their tummies and overall health.
