More Than Meets the Eye
Meals are prepared by local chefs in the CHSLC service area and delivered by dedicated volunteers daily.
Services like Meals on Wheels are much more than simply delivering a nutritious meal to the clients’ home. It also provides a daily contact and friendly familiar face. Lois, a long- time Meals on Wheels client, had a wonderful relationship with staff and volunteers. Lois was always first to comment on the quality of the meals delivered. Her feedback and others are invaluable to us as we now deliver self-prepared frozen meals. Meals on Wheels was the first CHSLC service Lois received, however, she was able to access several of our services. What Lois and her family recalled most were the lasting friendships that were developed and kept right up to the end of Lois’s life.
It is services like Meals on Wheels, Diner’s Club, Transportation and more that can help change a person’s situation. These services help improve the quality of life and maintain independence as long as possible. "Volunteers Matter"
Ryan’s story is another example how volunteers can make a difference in another’s life. One day, while Ryan and his helper Lianna were making their Meals on Wheels delivery, they came across one of the clients in distress. If not for their timely delivery and quick thinking calling 911, what could have been a terrible outcome for the client was avoided!
