Dear LCS:

Thanks for providing Meals on Wheels for mom. It is a great relief to me to have this service, as I live out of town.

I have worked with LCS over the years in my job. I am thankful that now, when we need help, you folks can assist us.

For many seniors and disabled people, getting to the store, or cooking a meal can be a challenge. Yet healthy eating at any age is key to maintaining good health. That’s why each week, we deliver Meals on Wheels to seniors and disabled people. This program has no age restriction, and is available to anyone who is unable to shop or prepare meals for themselves. This includes those recovering from surgery or illness.

Why chose a program like Meals on Wheels? Kevin recently sent us this note, and it explains why Meals on Wheels is important to him and his family:
