Testimonials

“Dear friends, I wonder if you realize what a blessing your Meals on Wheels food is to older people. As I am nearly 80 years old, I find it difficult to get outdoors, especially in winter. For the past year I have been getting your food and it makes a big difference. At my age I really only want one big meal a day and for one person it is hard to buy and keep fresh food; plus your meals give me so much variety. Since I have been enjoying your meals I feel much better both physically and mentally. Just the fact that they are delivered makes me feel like someone cares.”
