Daily well-being visit by a friendly volunteer
In addition to receiving a warm, nutritious meal, our volunteer drivers make sure our clients are safe, along with a warm smile and a friendly hello. Volunteer drivers report back to the Meals on Wheels staff with any potentially unsafe situations.
Our staff Support Coordinator can provide referrals and resources to help keep our clients independent. Please call our office for details.
