Meals on Wheels drivers thanked

Meals on Wheels Awareness Week is May 24 to 30.

Submitted by FCSS

Rimbey’s Meals on Wheels program is co-ordinated through the Rimbey FCSS office and in 2009 volunteers delivered 1,246 meals to Rimbey residents.

Volunteers deliver hot nutritious meals to the homes of seniors, persons with disabilities, and those recovering from illness. The Meals are prepared at Parkland Manor and delivered between 11:30 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday. The Meals on Wheels service allows people to maintain good health and independence. Diabetic, low salt or other special diet meals are available.

FCSS salutes our many Meals on Wheels drivers this week, and thanks you for your time and effort to make this program a success. We appreciate the efforts of each of the dietary staff members at the Parkland Manor for being so willing to accommodate the Meals on Wheels program

The visit by the volunteer is just as vitally important as the healthy meal. Volunteers bring bright smiles and friendly greetings while checking to make sure seniors are safe and well.

To inquire about meal service, call Rimbey FCSS at 843-2030. The office is located in the Rimbey Provincial Building. Office hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Delivering smiles one meal at a time.
