While the holidays are considered a time to come together, many homebound and socially isolated older adults are unable to gather with loved ones to celebrate the season.

Each year, Mobile Meals volunteers dedicate their Christmas morning to delivering nutritious meals and warm holiday greetings to homebound seniors across Knox County.

In addition to a meal, each senior receives a holiday gift bag generously donated by you and other friends in the community. For many, this may be their only visitor that day.

Volunteers are needed all holiday season. Visit to learn how to join our family of volunteers.
