Meals on Wheels of Syracuse staff and volunteers prepared and delivered 4,352 meals February 16-20, 2015. The high volume of meals were delivered despite the single digit temperatures, snow covered roads, and winter break absentees.
The normal daily average number of meals has been 756, but for the week of February 16 the average daily increased to 870 meals. Nearly 197,000 meals were served last year to homebound seniors in Syracuse.
