Freeholders Encourage Volunteers To Help Meals On Wheels

Vital Program During The Public Health Emergency
Did you know that Hunterdon County’s Meals on Wheels delivers warm, nutritious meals to seniors and homebound neighbors up to five days per week, often including bagged lunches for the weekends? During the current public health emergency, Hunterdon County’s Meals on Wheels program is more important than ever, Freeholder Board Deputy Director Susan J. Soloway reports in a new video supporting the program. 

Freeholder Soloway said, “Meals on Wheels not only provides nutrition, it is a lifeline for some of the most vulnerable people in our community. Due to the public health emergency, Meals on Wheels has altered the way meals are delivered to eliminate direct contact and protect the health of both participants and the volunteers."
