Nutritious home-delivered meals and friendly caring contact delivered by volunteers to homebound elderly/disabled persons. Helps improve the health, independence, and dignity of our neighbors.
"I am so glad that I am able now to receive meals from you. I had a stroke recently but want to remain independent. My children live in (another state) and they wanted me to move closer to them, but I feel much better staying here in my own home. I appreciate Meals on Wheels -- bringing such good meals to me, and the volunteers who bring them are always so nice." Mrs. M.
Home-delivered meals allow people like Mrs. M. to keep their independence and dignity. It allows them to stay in their own homes and neighborhoods where they have lived for many years. The food and friendly contacts that we provide also gives them security, accommodates their disabilities, and provides them with the daily nutrition they need at their age. Our service also insures that someone is looking in on them, and communicating that they care.
Believe it or not, there are hundreds of elderly and disabled people who go to bed hungry every night in our community. Many do not have family members to help them, but you can help us provide them with the food and human contact that they need.
