I am a working single-parent mom and got involved in delivered meals for the Fremont seniors and disadvantaged families for the last two years. Every friday I go I am inspired by the people involved in the work as I do. The coordinations that are involved in getting the meals ready to each needed invidual from different pools of volunteers on a daily basis seems tedious and complex, yet when I get that list of homes to deliver, it all worked out -- which renal meal goes to whom, which diet meal to the diabetics etc -- all nicely labeled and coded. Specific notes about each delivery is noted so drives could find the house or deliver meal as requested by the receiver. The ease of delivery and happy clients are a result of this hard working crew behind the scene for ensure each meal is delivered to the door hot and ready for the needed family. We drives also get periodic quizes and review on safety of food handling, plus cookies for appreciation. Every time I go I see wonderful and smiling volunteers efficiently getting the tubs of meals to their car. It just makes my friday bright knowing I have joined a group of people who understand their value in our community. Also, hats off to Barbara and Tammy and Bob, being there to make the delivery process seamless. Thank you, team!
