Directors Comments: 

When we say “It Takes a Village,” we think of all the amazing things this community has done to make sure that the Fairbanks Meals on Wheels program stays sustainable.  The partnership with our community consists of volunteers who deliver meals daily to our clients, volunteers who bag cookies for our meals, and those who support our mission through donations to assure no senior goes hungry.                                                                                                                              

Alaska has the fastest growing senior population of all the states at 63%.  These amazing Pioneers have built the wonderful community we call home.  In the FNSB, our 80 and older cohort is currently 1,800 and will grow to over 5,000 by 2030, which is a 211% increase.  Your Fairbanks Senior Center is actively solidifying imperative base services to help our beloved Pioneers remain living at home.  The Fairbanks Senior Center calls this an “Aging in Place Movement” which consists of home modification, wellness checks, home-delivered and congregate meals, socialization, exercise and educational classes, homemaker services, and connection to programs that enhance financial security.                                               

Thank you for visiting our web page and your interest in our senior community.  It is an honor to help the Pioneers who were essential in building our Golden Heart City!

Feel free to contact me any time about how you can directly impact a senior’s life.

The Fairbanks Senior Center is proud to announce… The Fairbanks Meals on Wheels 2023 Year End Giving Campaign has come to a final end. As a result of our amazing and valuable community business partners, and all the anonymous and private donors, the Fairbanks Meals on Wheels program was able to raise over $41,000! That secures 8,200 hot meals for our home-bound seniors.
Together, as a strong community, we are ensuring to help our Alaskan seniors by freezing out senior hunger. From all our senior’s big hearts to yours, THANK YOU!

 

 

 

About our Meals on Wheels program:

This year, the Fairbanks Senior Center is excited to announce that we have entered into our 50th year of Meals on Wheels services throughout the Fairbanks North Star Borough. With construction underway, we have not had a chance to have that big 50th anniversary party. Our goal, in June 2024, is to have that big “Grand Opening” that everyone is waiting for, and celebrating with lots of food, music, laughter, and memories to share from the good old days.

January, 1973, the Fairbanks Senior Center established the first Meals on Wheels program in the Interior of Alaska. Since the beginning, the Center has delivered thousands of meals to our home-bound seniors throughout the Interior. In FY2023, between our home-delivered meals, and our drive-up congregate lunches, we delivered 67,429 smiles! In order to sustain our senior growth population that is coming to a roar, we are needing your help to ensure that no senior goes hungry. Help us celebrate our elders, and 50 years of service this holiday season by supporting our elders’ passions and desires to age at home!
