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 reheatable deliciousness to tide the seniors over the weekend.
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 (and we pay a generous mileage allowance.) 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. Sadly, for seniors, an inescapable fact is that infirmity and accident lurk. This daily contact is the best way we have of making sure that all our seniors are cared for.
