I am a believer of this organization. I am a board member but also have delivered meals for over 2 years. The clients are given wonderful meals that they enjoy. I constantly get positive comments from clients about how good the food is and how easy it is to sign up. Everyone goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the clients are looked after and taken care of.
