Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa is serving up much more than food this holiday. Meals on Wheels program provides nutritious meals to people who can't leave their homes.
Volunteer driver Scott enjoys meeting and talking with the clients on his route.
"I'm sure they enjoying having somebody stop by, because this may be the only time of the day that somebody comes to visit," he said.
Scott says around the holidays it's more important than ever that volunteers like him can step in as family for their homebound clients.
This week Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa is delivering an old fashioned Thanksgiving dinner that includes Turkey, Stuffing, Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Mixed Vegetables, Cranberry Sauce and Pumpkin Pie.
Thank you to all our donors.
One in four local Meals on Wheels programs across the country has a waiting list of hungry seniors who need to be fed, but lack the funding to do anything about it. Help us rally support and call on Congress to fully fund Meals on Wheels before the December 8th decision deadline.
Send a message to Congress that you stand with Meals on Wheels: Skip lunch and post a picture of your empty plate instead.
