  • I am appreciative of Meals on Wheels. Years ago when I was still teaching, I received a call from the Meals on Wheels office to tell me my dad had not answered the doorbell for his lunch delivery. I rushed to his house to find a major emergency situation. I don’t know what would have happened without that call.
