We are here to serve the seniors of our community.
Beginning July 1, we will no longer have lunches “to go”. Now that Covid 19 is not lurking everywhere, there is no longer “to go” meal funding. The MOW program along with the eat-in lunch program are instituted to take care of those unable to shop for themselves or stand at a stove and cook as well as those still able to congregate and mingle.
The lunch program specifically is in place to encourage seniors to stay active in their communities by interacting with other seniors for moral support, to share stores covering the past, present, and future. It is important to relate to those sharing many of the same experiences. Because of the need for human connections, all of those able to congregate are urged to do so by dining at the Senior Center. The company is great and the price is right.
There will be times when you will witness meals on hand that are packaged and ready to be picked up and wonder why that service is not offered to you. Those meals awaiting pick up are meals reserved by Meals on Wheels qualifiers who live a bit out of the delivery area and have a family member pick up for them as well as a recipient who is not at home during the MOW delivery time due to an appointment so drops by on their driver’s way home.
The privilege of dining in or picking up has been a special treat and hopefully most of you will continue to use the Center’s services.
On a happier note, $1375 more was collected during our recent March for Meals fundraiser. That brought the total to $5713. Thank you. Also, Subaru’s Share the Love event netted us $4,442.43. Thank you for all your support.
