October’s Mission: Meals on Wheels
Founded in 1987, Suffolk Meals on Wheels, Inc. is a non-profit organization with its office located on the Garden Level of Sentara Obici Hospital. We deliver nutritious meals to homebound residents in the Suffolk, Windsor, Smithfield, and Isle of Wright region who find it difficult or impossible to prepare meals for themselves. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday, rain or shine. As an independent local organization, Suffolk Meal on Wheels receives no state nor federal funding but instead relies on private payments, grants, donations, and fundraising events to support our home delivered meals program.
Suffolk Meal on Wheels provides a source of daily social contact for people who would otherwise be alone. With the help of our meal service, seniors and individuals with disabilities are given the opportunity to age in place with respect and dignity. Because volunteers check on meal recipients often, older adults who live alone can be comforted knowing that we are always there to ensure their safety. Our dedicated and compassionate volunteers serve as the eyes and ears of our organization, and alert office staff to any inconsistencies in a home environment, behavior or personality changes, and any other pertinent information.
The success of Suffolk Meals on Wheels centers around an extraordinary core of volunteers who contribute their time, caring and concern for our recipients. Suffolk Christian Church has a volunteer team headed by Kitty Martin. We are always looking for additions to our team. At the present time our team of volunteers spends about two hours every 6 or 7 weeks with deliveries.
