In addition to providing nourishing food to homebound seniors, Meals on Wheels' volunteers perform safety checks.

A crucial part of Meals on Wheels is the security of knowing someone is checking on your loved one when you can’t. Sometimes that certain someone might just save a life..

Wil is a Spectrum Meals on Wheels volunteer in Livermore. A semi-retired professional and father of three teenagers, he loves the friendships he’s developed with the seniors in his community through volunteering. Last week, Wil was delivering meals to homebound seniors on his regular Monday route. Meal in hand, he strode up to the apartment of Virginia, an elderly homebound widow, who recieves meals 5 days a week. He knocked on Virginia’s door but didn't hear an answer. Wil tried calling but the line was busy.

Spectrum is looking for contractor proposals for:

MECHANICAL CONTRACTORS, PLUMBING CONTRACTORS, INSULATION/ATTIC VENTILATION CONTRACTORS, and WINDOW CONTRACTORS

Do you know what food insecurity looks like for older adults in our community?

It looks like seniors on social security skipping meals.

It looks like Cal Berkeley graduates relying on free lunch programs.

It looks like seniors in transitional housing playing bingo for free bread.

It looks like veterans depending on food stamps.

 

Food insecurity affects seniors from all walks of life. Give now to support vulnerable seniors.
