We Love Packers!

Volunteer “packers” at work in our Meals on Wheels kitchen. In this video you will see them pack over 300 low-sodium frozen meals.

What is the Community Saying?

“WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOUR HOME CARE PROVIDERS for their great care of my dad. My dad would often comment on how well he was treated by them. Also, they went beyond the call of duty with their care and they should be commended for their hard work. Thank you so much.”

“YOU GUYS SAVED MY LIFE! After my husband died I was worn out and underfed and weighed only 72 pounds. I couldn’t even put a sandwich together. Your meals literally saved me. I know I wouldn’t be here today if you hadn’t taken care of me.”
