Meals on Wheels Delivers Well-being
Our Meals on Wheels Program delivers dozens of delicious fresh cooked hot lunches to home-bound seniors every week day. On Fridays, our Meals on Wheels drivers deliver a weekend’s worth of reheat-able meals to ensure our clients are able to have meals over the weekend if they desire.
Apart from this invaluable service, we are especially proud of the wonderful volunteer drivers who pick up hot meal cases at Senior Center and deliver them to the home bound seniors on their routes. They use their own vehicles for delivery. They report that their contact with “their” seniors is a rewarding and satisfying task.
One further thought about Meals on Wheels: in a rural place like ours, many of these seniors “fly under the radar” of even their closest neighbors, sometimes going for days and days without seeing anyone. The five-days-a-week contact with “their” driver is, in many cases, the closest and best contact they have with real people in the outside world. This daily contact is the best way we have of making sure that all our seniors are cared for.
Eligibility: Individual must be 60 Years old or older or disabled. Individual must be home-bound and unable to cook or shop and lacking assistance. $5 per meal donation suggested.
