Deliver nourishing, balanced meals at home to those unable to provide proper meals for themselves so client''s can live independently for longer periods of time in the comfort of their own homes.
Programs: Provide hot, nutritious meals at noon time for the elderly, handicapped, or persons convalescing from illness or surgery. Drivers have daily contact with our clients offering friendship and concern for the clients' well-being. On days meals cannot be delivered because of ice or snow, all clients are notified by telephone and their well-being is checked on by our day chairs.

I've been a volunteer with the program for almost 15 years. I started out as avolunteer driver when our son was a preschooler. I wanted to make a difference and give back to the community. It was an activity we did enjoyed and did together and it made a differnece in pour lives as well as the lives of the clients. I just recently retired from the board of directors due to term limits aafter serving as chairperson for 9 years and I still volunteer every Monday as a day chair ensuring the other routes are covered by volunteers and often acting as a substitute driver then and other days. This is a great way to hlep seniors and other physically challenged people remain living independently in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible. Over the years I have met many wonderful people through my volunteer experience , clients, volunteers and NMoW staff.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the Northland, southern Clay County area.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
provide more menu options for the clients.
