Volunteers—typically driving on their lunch hour—deliver meals at midday. The type of meal will depend on your doctor-ordered dietary plan. Each meal is in two containers. Both are delivered cool, not frozen, and can be refrigerated until mealtime. The black container, sealed in plastic wrap, can be reheated in a microwave or conventional oven. It generally holds an entrée and one or more vegetables. The other container may hold a roll, a salad and a dessert. It’s a lot of food, and some recipients make two meals of it.
Our drivers also deliver a personal welcome and a short visit. For people isolated in their homes, this visit may be as important as the food. It also gives out-of-town family members peace of mind, knowing that someone is looking in on their loved one each weekday.
