As a Meals on Wheels volunteer, during this COVID crisis it means dropping meals at the door and backing up to a safe distance before the recipient comes to the door. Conversations that have become the norm with the people delivered to now must happen from a distance. But with many people who get Meals on Wheels at elevated risk of complications from COVID-19, they are relying on meals delivered to their home more than ever. “It’s more of a wave with a ‘Hey, how are you doing?’” Our volunteers have to just rest easy knowing that they are still providing much needed food and a friendly face.
