Meals on Wheels, Community Meals, Frozen Take-Out Meals, & Liquid Nutritional Supplements for Island County Residents Age 60+
Colin has to choose between heat or paying other bills. His family lives far away, he can’t drive, and his phone is broken. I’m his Meals on Wheels delivery driver and often the only person he sees all week. We share stories from our lives; we’ve become friends. One day Colin needed help. Had I not arrived, he would have had no way to reach anyone. I called ISR which launched the staff into action to get him the help he needed. What would have happened if I hadn’t arrived? Instead, he’s OK this evening because of Meals on Wheels and people who care.
In 2022, our Nutrition program served over 80,000 meals.
