If you receive a home-delivered meal, please understand that we value your flexibility. Your meal might arrive slightly behind schedule at times.Weather and road construction are factors.
Delays might also happen due to the fact the number of meals a driver delivers on a particular day often varies.
We encourage our drivers to take a few moments to make sure the senior receiving a meal is at home and well.
Families rely on our meal delivery drivers to check on the welfare of senior family members. In most cases, the driver is simply running behind and has not forgotten you.
Please wait to call our Senior Center until 1:00 pm to report that your meal has not yet arrived.
Have you taken action and stocked up on a few shelf- stable meals in your kitchen in the unlikely event that bad weather closes our Senior Center kitchen?
In addition, we thank you in advance for providing a safe way to bring your meal to your door. Your meal delivery driver appreciates it when you make their safety a priority and arrange to keep your driveway and sidewalks clear of snow and ice.
If bad weather cancels Senior Center meals, you can expect to receive a phone call from our automated phone system. One Call Now will provide you with instructions in the event of a Level 2 or Level 3 snow emergency. Level 2 or 3 will cancel meals.
