Meals on wheels rolls on

Dave Gear and Joe Stumpe of The Active Age visit recipient Clifford Bruso.

Members of The Active Age staff were honored to take part in delivering Meals on Wheels to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Older Americans Act Nutrition Program. We salute the employees of Senior Services, Inc. and volunteers such as Don Martinson, right, who make Meals on Wheels possible.

Volunteer Don Martinson delivers a meal to Geneva Kerr.

The first 17 Meals on Wheels were delivered here in January 1969. Currently, between 850 and 900 are delivered five days a week. Volunteers do more than just deliver food — they check on recipients’ well-being and become a friendly, familiar face.
