April Newsletter

2023 was an amazing year. Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels achieved record highs in seniors served and total meals served. Additionally, 126 new seniors have already started receiving services through February 2024. Amazing!

A key part of fulfilling our mission is providing meals with at least 1/3 of the U.S. recommended dietary allowances for calories and nutrients. The menus created and the meals served have been approved by our Dietician and Certified Food Protection Manager. With over 2,500 seniors’ receiving meals, it’s important participants self-manage dietary restrictions or preferences. The Home Delivered Meals Participant Guide states, “all diet restrictions will be self-monitored by each client and each client is responsible for managing their own dietary intake.”

If you’re a home delivery client, at the beginning of each month, take a moment to review the menu and contact your Site Manager for any meals you would like replaced with a frozen meal. Site phone’s numbers can be found on the monthly menu or call (509) 735-1911 for assistance.

Please help us ensure you receive a nutritious meal that meets your
dietary restrictions or preferences. – Steven Davis, Director
