Meal A Day is in jeopardy of having to shut down on Wednesdays and Thursdays due to lack of cooks to help prepare meals to be delivered to elderly shut-ins and serve to senior citizens at the Martin Luther King Drive activity center, according to program manager Karon Weatherman.
“If you can spare some time to help us please let me know as soon as possible. We have been begging for help for about 3 months and no one has answered the call. One or two people just can’t cook for 160 people,” said Weatherman.
Cooks need only donate a few hours of their morning to help prepare and cook food. Volunteers don’t have to be experienced cooks. They need only have a willingness to lovingly prepare meals.
“Please contact me if you can help out,” Weatherman said.
The program is also in need of a driver to volunteer their time and vehiclde to drive a route to Meal A Day recipients in the Como-Pickton area. Help is needed starting next week, according to Weatherman.
To help out, call the Senior Citizens Center at 903-885-1661 or stop by.
