Meals on Wheels in Rockford

Rockford Community Center (RCC) officers Mary-Lou Benson and Phil Evans met with Pam Almeada with the Spokane Valley Meals on Wheels program on October 15th, 2010.
Pam is looking at four possible places in Rockford that are acceptable to set up the operation. The McIntosh Grange buildng, Rockford United Methodist Church and the St Joseph Catholic Church Parish Hall were looked at but it was decided to serve the meals in the Community Center which is also in line with the RCC mission of helping those in the Rockford area in need of assistance.

Pam said that Meals on Wheels will be in Rockford one day a week and distribute 6 frozen additional meals for those who participate in the program. Those who are house-bound would have their meals delivered to them by local volunteers. Arrangements are being made to prepare the meals at the Fairfield Care facility (former Fairfield Good Samaritan Center) as this kitchen complies with the Spokane Regional Health District regulations. The meals would then be served at the RCC and the 6 frozen meals would be taken home for the rest of the week.

The projected time to begin Meals on Wheels in Rockford is around the last of December or first of January, 2011. The list of names of people in the community who need meals brought to them and those who would come to the RCC for their meals are being gathered. Volunteers are also needed to take the meals to the house-bound.
If you or someone you know will benefit from this program or would like to volunteer, please call Mary-Lou at (509) 291-3146 for more information.
