MARCH FOR MEALS

Our Kupuna Need You

All seniors would like to live with dignity, economic independence, and good health. According to a 2018 national survey conducted by AARP, 76% of Americans aged 50 and older say they prefer to remain in their current residence.

The average Lanakila Meals on Wheels meal recipient is a female of Asian descent who is in her 80s and living on less than $13,700 annually. Studies from Meals on Wheels of America show that millions of seniors may be forced to prematurely enter assisted living or nursing facilities if they don't receive the nutritious meals and necessary support services they need to live independently. To put this in perspective, it costs less to provide an entire year of meals for a senior than it costs to spend one day in the hospital or six days in a nursing home.

At Home for the Holidays

In a special collaboration with world-renowned Chef Alan Wong, Lanakila Kitchen introduces its new Apple Butter Mochi this holiday season. As a proponent of healthier living, Chef Alan inspired Lanakila Kitchen to innovate one of its baked goods by incorporating healthier ingredients like monk fruit sweetener and the superfood ginger. This sweet treat is available now for a limited time only at Don Quijote, Marukai and Times Supermarket locations.

Because of you, we fed nearly 2,700 seniors with over 576,000 meals throughout last year. Together, we can do it again. Let's keep our seniors connected – to food, their communities, and to each other.
