“That will leave us 2 short on Thursdays. So, If you can give a few hours of your time to help in your community we would really appreciate the help,” Weatherman said.

Cooks typically arrive at 7 a.m. prepare hot, nutritious meals and finish by 11 a.m. after meals are ready and packaged for delivery by additional volunteers at lunch time Monday-Friday to senior adults who are homebound, unable to prepare meals for themselves and have no one to prepare meals for them, are ill, disabled or homebound. Meals are offered at a discounted rate of $2 for seniors who can pay, thanks in part to contributions from businesses, individuals and organizations such as Hopkins County United Way.

In 2019, the Meal A Day program served 41,157 meals to Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County senior adults.
