Greater Spokane County Meals on Wheels provides meals across all of Spokane County. For nearly one-third of the participants, this is the only meal they will eat today.
They are experiencing an acute shortage of volunteers to help with meal delivery, especially in the Emerson/Garfield neighborhood.
Greater Spokane County Meals on Wheels delivered almost 275,000 meals to homebound senior citizens in 2018. More than 300 volunteers deliver 22,000 meals each month to residents throughout all of 1,800 miles of Spokane County.
They are asking the Emerson/Garfield community for help in spreading the word about our services. Participants must be 60 years old or older and they pay only what they can afford – no one is refused because of a lack of ability to pay. They offer home delivery and also operate 12 congregate meal sites where seniors can enjoy a hot meal in comfort in the company of their peers.
The issue of senior hunger and isolation are complicated and immense and our agency cannot conquer it alone. Please join in the fight. If you have any questions, call Greater Spokane County Meals on Wheels anytime and speak to an intake specialist or volunteer coordinator. 509-924-6976
