We delivered 23,323 meals to 146 home bound, isolated neighbors. This breaks down to an average of 93 meals per day. One hundred and twenty three of those clients were over 60 years old and 85 were female. Our client surveys indicated that they were very pleased with our service and they enjoyed the food taste and quality. More than 275 devoted volunteers provided over 4,500 hours of service to our program. We have the best volunteers anywhere!
Our goal is to increase our outreach efforts and increase our client base to 100 clients and organize our volunteer and skill needs.
