The Floridant/10210279

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Floridant -- For a community already suffering from loneliness and isolation, the dangers of Covid-19 for seniors extend far beyond the physical. Now more than ever, our seniors need nutritious food, safety checks, and emotional support. Thanks to the generosity of supporters like Cigna, New York Life - South Florida, and The Jack Brewer Foundation, Meals on Wheels South Florida and their dedicated team of volunteers will deliver nearly 700 hot Thanksgiving meals to homebound seniors on Thursday, November 24, 2022.

    Meals on Wheels South Florida staff and volunteers visit clients on Thanksgiving morning and present them with a hot turkey meal with all the trimmings, homemade placemats, fresh flowers, and a friendly holiday hello.

What:    These meals are delivered to Meals on Wheels South Florida's senior clients who are homebound and alone without family to visit them for Thanksgiving. The meal box includes roasted turkey, stuffing, seasonal vegetables, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, and pumpkin pie.
