Testimonials From Our Consumers
"I don't have the phyiscal stamina to prepare meals anymore. I was just grabbing anything to fill an empty hole. Thanks to meals on wheels, I eat healthy, well-balanced meals again. I don't even have to do the dishes. Your service is greatly appreciated. Thank you."
--Meals on Wheels Recipient
"I thank you for all the wonderful meals. The people who deliver are wonderful people. They are so kind. I do drink my juices and milk and I wouldn't otherwise. The food is very good and I get to eat, that's a plus. Thank you very much!"

"For the past 3 weeks I have been trying to find information about mental health resources and have been getting a run around. I called your company last night and got a return call in the morning from Sandra Labelle. She was amazing! She pointed me in a direction, gave me names and numbers - and HOPE. She also made sure I could call her back for any reason. Thank you so much for all the work you people do and thank you for Sandra."

“I want to thank you folks very much for all the good you do for me and for many others. May you be as healthy and joyous as you help us to be. Your help means more and more in the bad economy – just earlier this month my freezer was completely empty except for a few of your frozen meals, which I saved. You will never know just how much you are appreciated (or by how many).”

"I am confined to a wheelchair and 60 yrs old and my husband is 64 yrs. I guess we are Senior Citizens! I really enjoy it when the Meals on Wheels volunteers come. I have a dream that maybe I'll be able to get up and just walk. Instead I must try to be the best I can!"

“Seniors no longer need to become stagnant, lonely individuals. As you enter a community center, you realize that doors to many opportunities are opening. There are opportunities for service, for fellowship, for assistance and for ventures into new adventure in art, exercise, and writing. Opportunities to be excited about, living in the NOW!”
