Access to nutritious, affordable and tasty meals is imperative to the independence and health of older adults. The benefits of the Meals on Wheels program are physical, emotional and psychological is more important than ever right now. The onset of COVID-19 a year ago resulted in higher demand for our Meals on Wheels program from the community. At this critical time, our wonderful volunteers deliver meals and provide both a social connection and safety check-in for our most isolated and vulnerable seniors.
