Do you ever worry about someone who isn't able to fix themselves a nutritous hot meal every day? Now, during the holiday season would be a great time to refer them to Meals on Wheels.
The Meals On Wheels Association of America is the oldest and largest national organization composed of local, community-based Senior Nutrition Programs in all 50 U.S. states. These programs provide well over one million meals to seniors who need them each day.
Did you know that hunger is a serious threat facing millions of seniors in the United States? Nearly six million seniors faced the threat of hunger in 2007. Over 11% of all seniors experienced some form of food insecurity that year.
At Vermont Woods Studios Furniture we take turns volunteering for Meals on Wheels in our own town of Vernon, VT. It's not just a great way to serve your community, it's also a lot of fun. It only takes about an hour/week per volunteer if each volunteer signs up for a different day. Why not sign up to deliver Meals on Wheels in your community?
