Meals on Wheels Needs Donations for Emergency Meals

Observer Reports

Meals on Wheels of Anderson is planning ahead for the icy weather of winter by beginning to put together meals that can be stored for use when drivers can't deliver. Each year the organizations seeks donations of NICE (Nutrition in Case of Emergency) Meals that can provide our neighbors in need shelf-stable, ready-to-eat food that can be used in case of an emergency. 
Meals on Wheels is asking for donations to assemble these “bagged meals” which contain ready-to-eat soup (no water needed), a granola/nutrition bar, a single-serving pack of raisins or can of fruit and a single-serving can or box of juice packaged in a gallon-sized zippered plastic bag. 
The goal is to provide each recipient at least three of these “care packages” during the winter months. With more than 400 recipients, the organization needs to receive at least 1,300 meals. 
Church groups, schools, clubs or service organizations are invited to collect and package these items for distribution this winter. Donations of packaged meals can be received at the Meals on Wheels office at 105 S. Fant Street in Anderson. 
Meals on Wheels of Anderson relies solely on donations received from the community for its day-to-day operations and receives no federal or state funding. In response to this need, each year we call for donations of NICE (Nutrition in Case of Emergency) Meals that can provide for our recipients if we are unable to deliver. The meals are made up of shelf-stable, ready-to-eat items that can be used in case of an emergency.
