Where We Deliver

map_mowplusHaving a friendly volunteer deliver a noon meal Monday through Friday insures that the frail individual has a well-balanced meal. A home delivered meal helps combat hunger and prevent malnutrition.

In addition, daily contact with the volunteers who deliver meals helps to prevent emotional and mental depression which are synonymous with social isolation. Volunteers and clients benefit by forming friendships and brighten each others day.

Volunteers report unmet needs they discover while delivering meals and staff members work to meet those needs. It may be investigating a gas leak, providing a heater or electric fan, finding someone to make a small home repair, etc.

Sometimes the person delivering a meal will find a client in a life threatening situation and make arrangements for emergency care. It could be someone who has fallen and broken a hip. It could be someone who is in a coma.

The volunteers are trained to investigate when someone fails to answer the door.
