The Craven County Meals on Wheels Program delivers hot meals each weekday to approximately 170 older adults. To be eligible, an individual must be at least 60 years of age and basically unable to prepare a nutritious meal for his or her self.
NBWC members volunteer 3 days a month to deliver meals under the watchful eye of MOW Chairwoman Paula Lindsay. For many of the recipients, this may be their only contact with another person all day so these deliveries are always anticipated with pleasure by the clients. There is an on-going need for volunteers to deliver meals and anyone who has access to a vehicle and can spare as little as a couple of hours at least one morning per month should contact Nikki Nay at (252) 638-1790 or stop in at the George St. Senior Center in downtown New Bern.
