Because of our community, seniors receive a daily meal delivered by a friendly volunteer from Marion-Polk Food Share’s Meals on Wheels. Joyce, a recipient of Meals on Wheels, explains that volunteers deliver more than a meal, they delivers a lifeline.
“I was in pain. I went to my doctor and I said I can’t walk on this foot. I’m in a wheelchair and I can’t stand for maybe three or four minutes. My doctor helped me get Meals on Wheels.
I will tell you the meals are very healthy and nice. The balanced meal helps me be very independent
Meals on Wheels is a big part of my social life. It’s a wonderful thing to have a balanced meal, but it’s an even greater thing to have the fellowship.
I never feel alone. Every day that they come in here, I feel safe. The volunteers are people who are concerned about me. Meals on Wheels is my lifeline to the world.”
