She can’t say enough about Meals on Wheels

Letter to the Editor

I just can’t let another day go by without singing the praises of Meals on Wheels.

At the age of 85, not long ago I had a ruptured appendix. At my age, that’s hard for even me to acknowledge.

With limited mobility, one of the first things I did was to call Meals on Wheels. Much to my surprise and delight, I ‘ve become one of their aficionados.

The food is varied daily, delivered at least warm and ready to pop into my microwave. It comes with a drink, bread or rolls (that look homemade) and a dessert. (Today’s was red-velvet frosted cake).

Now how in the world could I shop for, bring home, store, then later prepare such a delectable feast – personally delivered – for all of $2?

All this well-balanced food is delivered by volunteers under the sponsorship of St. Joseph Community Services Inc. The program also works out of the Nashua Senior Activity Center.

Even I thought the cost would be prohibitive. I was blown away by the $2 per meal cost. Of course, “contributions” are willingly and gladly received – voluntarily, of course.

The quality and variety of this well-balanced food delivered to my home is nothing short of spectacular.

Thank you, Meals on Wheels, to every one of you who helps make this program work so well.
