Even before proposed cuts to the Meals on Wheels program, residents of The Arbors at Greenfield supported the program.

“We have been fundraising for Meals on Wheels for about 5 years,” says Cheryl Fisher, activities director at Arbors at Greenfield.

What does Meals on Wheels do?

Meals on Wheels delivers meals to homebound seniors 60 and older who are unable to prepare a nutritionally balanced meal and are unable to attend congregate hot lunches. Volunteers share conversation with participants and perform a wellness check for those who are alone during the day. Not only does the program improve quality of life through increased nutrition and socialization, it lowers government costs by reducing the need of participants for hospitals, nursing homes and other services.
