Health Info & Resources for Seniors
When the COVID-19 virus hit the Lehigh Valley this past March, it seemed like the whole nation completely changed overnight. Suddenly, there was panic and worry, and a lack of toilet paper in every store! Yet, one thing that remained the same was the dedication from our Meals on Wheels volunteers to uphold our mission of providing nourishing food to those in need. So far, during the 2019–2020 fiscal year, Meals on Wheels of the Greater Lehigh Valley has served over 300,000 meals to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities.
These meals were served every single weekday. And to this day, we have not missed a delivery day due to COVID-19. Throughout this pandemic, Meals on Wheels has been considered an essential service to the community. To ensure the safety of our clients, we have increased our safety procedures for all staff and volunteers. We believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that those who are part of the most-vulnerable population, our seniors, are taken care of and provided with a warm and healthy meal each day. Many times, during the “stay at home” phase, our volunteers were the only people that our clients saw in a day. We are here for you and we are still delivering! Our meals are delivered Monday–Friday. Meal cost is based on a sliding scale based on income and other criteria. If you or someone you know could use meals, please call Monica McCandless today at 610-691-1030.
