Meals on Wheels does More than Deliver Food

By Peter Olson, CEO

This past January, I had the opportunity to deliver meals to homebound seniors living in Daly City.  What started off as an effort to help out during a shortage of drivers became a rediscovery as to why I love my job!

Our Meals on Wheels program does more than just deliver food.  We provide homebound and often isolated seniors a hot, nutritious meal each day of the week.

Every day we check in with people and spend a few minutes talking about this, that and the other. We make sure that they are doing well. The friends I have met on my route, by their expressions of gratefulness and glee, inspire me to continue doing what I can do to help those most in need, those people who helped build the communities we live in and for whatever reason often get left behind.

As we continue to grow our programs and serve more seniors every day, we are looking for passionate, dedicated individuals to join our team.
