BEND, OR -- After three days of cancelations, Meals on Wheels deliveries resume Thursday, thanks to a cooperative effort between staff at the Council on Aging of Central Oregon, volunteers and the community. 

 

The agency says people have been asking how they can help make sure home-bound seniors get fresh food. In one case, COACO used Facebook to coordinate help for a woman in Redmond who was stuck in her home and had run out of food, medication and pet supplies. A member of a local four-wheeler group helped her get to the store.


Staff spent Wednesday preparing fresh salads for today's deliveries. A number of community members with off-road vehicles have offered to get Meals on Wheels volunteers to seniors, and help dig out pathways so deliveries can be made.


Lunch at the Bend Senior Center remains canceled.
