To the Editor,
With Meals on Wheels programs nationwide the subject of intense media coverage over the past week, the Board of Directors of Meals on Wheels of New Canaan (MOWNC) would like to address some of the issues that have been raised and how this will affect our local program. Meals on Wheels of New Canaan has been delivering nutritious meals to those in need in our community since 1972. The service we provide makes a real difference in peoples’ lives and allows them to remain in their homes. Meals on Wheels of New Canaan devotes over 90 percent of funds raised to client services. The volunteer Board of Directors administers the program and our 125 dedicated volunteer drivers deliver the meals to our clients each weekday throughout the year.
