Why Participate in Tabitha’s March for Meals

Tabitha Meals on Wheels

Tabitha Meals on Wheels is Celebrating its annual March for Meals campaign by raising awareness and funds to support hundreds of older neighbors within Lincoln city limits.

Founded in 1967 as the first program of its kind in Lincoln, Tabitha Meals on Wheels has since served over five million meals (and counting).

This critical resource relies upon generous gifts, community support and the dedication of hundreds of Volunteer drivers that deliver weekday meals, a well-being check and a friendly interaction—sometimes the only face-to-face conversation a Client may have that day, week or month.

In 2024, Tabitha needs to raise almost $700,000 in order to continue to cover the $7.50 meal delivery cost for 80% of recipients who cannot afford it.

“It’s up to all of us to provide for our older neighbors. Tabitha Meals on Wheels exists to fulfill that challenge,” said Brian Shanks, Tabitha President & CEO. “Due to higher-than-ever food costs, proper nutrition is becoming out of reach for many seniors. But thanks to your generosity, the Tabitha Meals on Wheels program can help. Your donation makes a major impact on the lives of many: it allows seniors to remain at home, provides healthy and delicious meals, and grants families peace of mind, knowing their loved ones are being looked after like one of our own.”

Provide Lincoln seniors with independence by giving a monthly or one-time gift at Tabitha.org/March.

You can also donate by dining out on March 20, where 10% of all proceeds from these well-loved, local restaurants will benefit Tabitha Meals on Wheels:

FireWorks Restaurant – 5750 S. 86th, Lincoln, NE 68526

Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill – Omaha: 2425 S. 192nd, Omaha, NE 68130

Thank you for keeping older neighbors in mind, empowering them to live joyfully, age gratefully in the comfort of their home.
