During the month of March we celebrate Meals on Wheels PLUS and the seniors we serve as we March for Meals together. March for Meals provides a wonderful opportunity to engage public officials in our community, garner media attention, and help raise public awareness for the nutritional and social needs of seniors. Local elected officials and community leaders participate in our Home-delivered Meals program by delivering meals to our clients and bringing awareness to our mission. Our sincere thanks to all who participated!
Every day, we are meeting the immediate needs of our clients by providing nutrition and compassion. One of our clients, Raymond, is 96 years old and finds the Home-delivered Meals a necessity in his life. “After I pay the bills, I must have three or four dollars left,” he said. “You guys help everybody,” he added.
Raymond says that the food is very good and balanced and loves the meat meals. He also loves the fresh produce and says that the people delivering the meals are so sweet and kind. Raymond says our Home-delivered Meals are necessary for local homebound seniors and that, without them, they don’t know how they could get by.
