Meals on Wheels of Syracuse delivered a record 1,438 meals on Wednesday. The program normally averages 700 meals. Extra meals were delivered in anticipation of having to close on Thursday due to the winter storm and blizzard warning.
In a first time effort, additional meals were delivered to Wednesday meal recipients for consumption on Thursday. Weather permitting, employees will attempt to deliver the remaining meals to 26 clients on Thursday who were not scheduled for normal meal delivery on Wednesday.
"We're in the middle of March for Meals and this is an incredible accomplishment to celebrate, thanks to our hard-working employees and dedicated volunteers who make it happen everyday!" said Dave Allen, Fund Development and Community Relations Director, Meals on Wheels of Syracuse.
