It seems like only yesterday that we were meeting to determine how to confront “the Virus”. Little did we imagine that we would STILL be dealing with it one year later! But we have successfully adapted and have ended this strange year continuing to provide fresh, nutritious meals for our clients.
Our new Food Service Director Kimberly Homan Rodriguez instituted new kitchen procedures so that we could handle food more safely. She also redesigned the menu so that we now serve a variety of nutritious meals prepared in our kitchen. Our drivers have new delivery guidelines so that they can deliver food safely to our clients while still checking in on them on a routine basis. We are receiving rave reviews about the new menus from our clients. We are accepting new clients to try out the new food offerings! Contact us at 216-991-6376 or click here to learn more.
We are starting an optional new meal payment process. Now clients can allow us to automatically charge their credit cards each month. This will make payments easier for them and alleviate the need to mail checks. See details in another article.
Our fundraising efforts are continuing. We are sponsoring two fun virtual events this spring. We will be Cooking with Kimberly on April 19, 2021 and holding a virtual 5K Miles for Meals Challenge the weekend of May 21-23, 2021.
Sadly, we must say farewell to two of our Board members, Claudia Woods and Chrissy Pearl. Claudia has provided valuable and thoughtful guidance over the past four years. Her insight into the issues confronting us was always appreciated. We will miss her, but she will remain a friend of Meals on Wheels. Thank you, Claudia! And Chrissy Pearl, who joined the Board in 2019, will also be leaving us now that she has a full time job and an active toddler. She has volunteered to help with website updates and email marketing as well as keeping her present fundraising commitments. Thank you, Chrissy!
We hope you stay safe and healthy,
Paul Nickerson, President
