Meals on Wheels Older Adult Alternatives works in collaboration with the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging, one of 12 multi-county agencies in Ohio, established under the federal Older American's Act of 1965, 1972 Amendments. Area Agency's on Aging provide leadership on all aging issues on behalf of older persons through a wide range of advocacy, planning, and coordination efforts leading to the development of community-based systems designed to assist older persons in leading independent, meaningful, and dignified lives in their own homes and communities for as long as appropriately possible.
Meals on Wheels Older Adult Alternatives of Fairfield County is supported in part by Older American Funds, the Meals on Wheels Senior Services Levy, donations, grants, and fundraising.
