Professional with expertise in this field
St. Vincent Meals On Wheels is one of the most amazing organizations. In the field of senior nutrition, it is considered "top notch". Sister Alice Marie Quinn, founder and leader, does a great job of planning menus that are attractive and tasty. When a person is homebound, and all alone, receiving a delicious and nutritious meal is very important. The program goes beyond meal delivery by helping clients with other needs to ensure that this frail population is able to remain at home and live as independently as possible. Kudos to the St. Vincent Meals On Wheels staff and volunteers for making miracles happen every day.
