Dear (Congressman/Congresswoman/Senator) (Last Name):
I am writing you on behalf of the 6,000 seniors served in Dallas County by VNA Texas Meals on Wheels. I want you to know there is a growing number of people facing senior hunger and isolation, both serious problems currently impacting your District and our nation at large.
VNA Texas provides both home-delivered and congregate meals as a public-private partnership and is a success story of the Older Americans Act by keeping our seniors healthy. Each meal costs about $6 to produce and deliver, compared to approximately $150 per day to live a nursing home on Medicaid or $2,000 per day to be hospitalized. Meals on Wheels is a fiscally smart investment!
If you would like to learn more or tour the VNA Texas kitchen (the largest single-site kitchen in the nation), please contact VNA President & CEO, Katherine Krause at firstname.lastname@example.org or (214) 689-0000. Thank you for your support of Meals on Wheels! Sincerely,
(Your Home Address)
