For 15 years, until suffering a heart attack at age 90, Joan delivered nutritious meals to seniors in her community who were often younger than herself. Today at 92, Joan is visited by many of the same people she volunteered with, only now she is the recipient of the nutritious meals she once delivered.
Although Joan remains independent, she is quite content to welcome the daily delivery of a hot meal. As she points out, "I look forward to a daily visit with my good friends at Meals on Wheels and of course the sandwiches and hot meals are just the ticket."
Joan's story demonstrates the cycle of giving and receiving that is appreciated by the many individuals dependent on some level of home care. Our Meals on Wheels program is fueled by volunteers who are selflessly committed to contributing positively to their community by delivering something as essential, yet as simple, as a life sustaining meal.
