The Meals on Wheels program is sponsored by the Palo Alto County Health System. Those who are unable to provide meals for themselves and are confined to their homes can ask for one meal a day to be delivered to their home Monday through Friday. This can be short-term for those who are recovering from an illness or injury or long-term, such as the elderly who are no longer able to cook nutritious meals for themselves. Indirectly, this service also provides a human contact for the shut in and a means of checking on their well-being.

There is a need for volunteers to spend an hour or so a day delivering the meals to those who are confined to their homes. Volunteers must have transportation and good idea of addresses. If you want to make the life of shut-ins a little brighter, volunteer your services.
