Meals on Wheels is a life giver and a life saver!

That Extra Mile (and a bowl of soup)

We love to tell the story of our Meals on Wheels drivers saving the lives of our diners, when they find them alone and incapacitated at home. It happens every month somewhere in our system, and we're glad to be there to help.

This story is a little different, though.

One of our Little House Cafe volunteers, who's been with us for 25 years, recently had a health problem that has pretty much confined him to his home. He needs a special diet to boot. Larry Wong, our Executive Chef, and his staff have been taking a specially prepared soup meal to him every day since he returned from the hospital. It's a more personal service than even our Meals on Wheels!

You can guess why they did this: They really care for those who care for our seniors.

Sometimes, "what goes around comes around" is a good thing! (And it comes with delicious soup.)

Thanks to all our volunteers and to Larry and our Peninsula Volunteers kitchen staff.
