INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 10, 2015) -- New research shows that 50 percent of families living near their senior loved ones do not share enough meals with them, losing an important family connection.

To encourage families to make time for these meals, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation® will donate $1 to Meals on Wheels America (up to $20,000 total through July 31, 2015) for each person that commits to regularly scheduling family dinners at SundayDinnerPledge.com. Pledging to have a sit-down dinner with loved ones will help to ensure other seniors will have a quality meal through the Meals on Wheels program.
