I cannot thank Meals On Wheels West enough for being there for me in my time of need. What would I have done without you? The food is good and definitely nutritious and I started feeling much better after a week. The volunteers are a god-send, and the newspapers and fresh fruit they bring along with the meals is very much appreciated
