SPOKANE, Wash. - Meals on Wheels hand delivers close to 300 meals to homebound seniors every day out of their downtown branch. This Thanksgiving, they plan on around 486. Their holiday plans were going well until last Monday when the staff and volunteers came into work to find the walk in refrigerator was out.
That will cost them around $2,000 just in repair bills. That figure does not account for all the food and produce that was lost overnight.
For many of the seniors Meals on Wheels serves, the visit from the volunteer is the only contact they have with other people. There is also a big Thanksgiving Day meal for those with no place to go that happens each year at their downtown branch from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
