DETROIT (WXYZ) -
Volunteers are needed on Easter morning (Sunday, March 31, 2013) to deliver meals to home-bound senior citizens on Detroit's east-side. For many seniors, this may be their only meal for the holiday.
The Home Delivered Meals program, more commonly known as Meals on Wheels, is designed to provide a hot meal, Monday through Friday for individuals who are 60 years of age or older, homebound and unable to obtain or prepare meals.
An in-home assessment is completed to determine eligibility. This service is not based on ability to pay, though donations are encouraged. Senior Nutrition programs also include Congregate Meals that are served in a group setting (usually at Senior Centers) and Liquid Nutrition.
