For most of us, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. We gather around tables overflowing with food, surrounded by the love and laughter of our friends and family.
But for someone with a serious illness, this season can be very difficult. Too sick to shop or cook for themselves, they sit down to an empty table—feeling disconnected, forgotten, and alone.
When you Celebrate with a Plate, you’ll feel good knowing you’re providing comfort and joy to a neighbor in need.

Meals that heal, delivered with love.
What began with one woman delivering a meal to a man dying of HIV/AIDS, is now a community of more than 9,000 volunteers who deliver meals, dignity, and love to people too sick to cook or shop for themselves.
When you donate, you become part of a joy-filled community that provides so much more than food on a plate. Together, we can deliver compassion, connection, and care to someone who needs it most. Especially during the holidays.
