We were so happy that our community was steadily moving towards opening up as a result of the widespread availability of COVID-19 vaccines. We were actively planning an extra hot meal delivery day and the grand re-opening of our four in-person sites. But with the aggressive Delta variant on the scene now, along with vaccine hesitancy, we seem to be in a holding pattern.
Since October, we have been delivering our usual 5 meals/week (we’ve never stopped, all through the year of pandemic) on 3 days: Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. On each of those days, our clients receive a hot, nutritious meal to enjoy immediately; on Mondays and Thursdays, they also receive an extra meal for the next day.
This schedule will continue for now, due to the current environment. Be assured that we will always try to make the best and safest decisions for our clients, volunteers and staff, and that we will share them with you just as soon as we can.
We will continue to adapt to this ever-changing situation as needed and continue to provide the vital services that help our community. Thank you all for your ongoing support that means so much to all of us in the Meals on Wheels family and of course, to our seniors.
