Providing sustenance, comfort

To the editor:

Today I thought for the millionth time how blessed our community is to have Meals on Wheels and its wonderful volunteers. I am continually awed and inspired by their dependability and commitment.

Our volunteers have delivered close to 500,000 meals to shut ins since February, 1969. That is 42 years of delivery, six days a week, 52 weeks a year in Kelowna, Rutland and West Kelowna. They have never missed a delivery due to inclement weather or challenging personal situations.

Because of them and their generosity, we can ensure that an affordable meal of a warm and flavourful bowl of soup, a hot nourishing entree and a tasty dessert reach those who are home-bound or disabled in some way. This service helps seniors retain their independence and gives families and friends peace of mind knowing that we are not just delivering meals but keeping watch over their loved ones.
