Meals on Wheels: Through The Eyes of a Service Provider

A man delivers a meal to a Meals on Wheels client

Meals on Wheels brings nutritious frozen meals directly to the homes of qualifying seniors who have difficulty shopping or preparing food. Our friendly staff and volunteers put care into their work: from the delivery drivers who know each customer by name to the customer service representative who gives personal attention while taking orders.

Watch the video below to see what it’s like to be a Sound Generations’ Meals on Wheels’ driver. Julian Montgomery speaks about the multiple roles he wears and the amazing friendships that have been built over the past six years.

Being a driver for our program is so much more than transporting meals. Julian sees himself as a therapist, counselor, friend, and a family member for his clients as well.

Make a gift to Sound Generations!

The most comprehensive non-profit in King County serving older adults, Sound Generations is a necessary and supportive entity to ensure seniors have access to basic necessities that improve their quality of life. Your support on #GivingTuesday and throughout the year sustains our work and helps ensure that we remain the important caring community for seniors that they need. While you’re thinking about what gifts to purchases, many seniors are worried about what their next meal will be.

Don’t believe us, read what our Meals on Wheels clients have to say:

I don’t cook anymore and it’s hard to get to the store. I have arthritis, asthma, and diabetes which limits my ability to get food. MOW changed my life. I’m extremely grateful.

We have been using your services for a few years and I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this service being available. I work full-time so it’s a challenge to get Mom to her appointments but this service allows me to reduce the hours I have to be away from my job. Mom really enjoys the social interaction with the drivers.

Make a gift to Sound Generations!
