Seniors Receive Emergency Meal Kits

With bad weather lurking around every corner, there may be a day or two this winter when The Arc of Orleans County’s Meals on Wheels volunteer drivers may not be able to deliver their daily meals to the seniors on their route. To ensure that the seniors’ food needs are taken care of, Meals on Wheels came up with the idea to give each senior three emergency meal kits that meet their daily nutritional requirements.

The three kits all contain non-perishable foods such as crackers, peanut butter and jelly packets, canned oranges, tuna and chicken salad kits, and V-8 juice. The meals were being delivered to the seniors along with their regular lunches over a three-day period along with a letter explaining why these meals are so important. “Many seniors don’t have family close by or transportation and, if the power were out due to bad weather, they may not be able to use a microwave. None of these meals provided require heating or refrigeration. They can just open the bag and enjoy their meal,” said Vicki Havholm, Meals on Wheels Coordinator.

The Arc’s Meals on Wheels program is run in partnership with Orleans County’s Office for the Aging. Both Meals on Wheels and the Office for the Aging would like to remind everyone that, if you have an elderly neighbor, please make sure to check on them from time to time, especially during these cold winter months.

If you have a loved one in Orleans County that you think would benefit from the Meals on Wheels program, please contact Meals on Wheels Coordinator Vicki Havholm at 585-589-5424.
