As the president of Livingston Associates since 2019, Tony DiTucci helps organizations develop and implement strategies to increase productivity, efficiency, value, and profitability. When he is not helping organizations create business strategies to achieve their short and long-term goals, Tony DiTucci supports charitable organizations such as Meals on Wheels.
For more than 50 years, Meals on Wheels has worked throughout the United States to eliminate senior hunger and help seniors maintain their independence by delivering nutritious meals directly to their homes. One in four seniors lives alone, and many do not have the ability or resources to prepare their own meals. Not only does Meals on Wheels provide physical and emotional sustenance, it lowers healthcare costs by reducing seniors’ risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes from eating poorly.
When volunteers deliver a meal, they also conduct a brief safety check to identify immediate medical needs and provide vital social interaction, both of which can help seniors avoid unnecessary hospitalizations. More than 81 percent of seniors who receive the service report their health has improved as a result.
