Community Champions 2024

Meals on Wheels for Santa Cruz County, a program of Community Bridges, extends heartfelt gratitude to all who participated and supported this year’s Community Champions!

We are immensely grateful to the following local leaders and elected officials for their unwavering commitment to our community’s older adults:

  • Yvette Brooks, Vice Mayor, Capitola
  • Casey Clark, Watsonville City Council 
  • Jack Dilles, City Councilman, Scotts Valley
  • Zach Friend, Santa Cruz County Supervisor, District 2
  • Ramon Gomez, from the office of Felipe Hernandez, Santa Cruz County Supervisor, District 4
  • Manu Koenig, Santa Cruz County Supervisor, District 1

Their presence during meal deliveries and at senior dining sites throughout Santa Cruz County has not only raised awareness but also provided invaluable human connection to those we serve.

This nationwide campaign, spearheaded by Meals on Wheels America, has underscored the critical importance of addressing isolation, food insecurity, and poverty among older adults. The statistics speak volumes, revealing the stark reality faced by many of our seniors. Yet, through initiatives like Community Champions Week, we unite as a community to provide essential support and nurture the well-being of our aging population.

Meals on Wheels for Santa Cruz County remains dedicated to our mission of delivering nutritious meals and vital support services directly to the homes of seniors in need. With your continued support, we can ensure that no senior in Santa Cruz County is left behind or forgotten.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of Community Champions Week. Your generosity and compassion have made a meaningful difference in the lives of our community’s older adults. Together, we reaffirm our commitment to upholding the health, dignity, and independence of seniors in Santa Cruz County.
