In an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19, Greater Spokane County Meals on Wheels is inacting some precautionary measures to protect our senior participants and still provide them with nutritious meals.
Let’s Slow the Flow!
Closing our twevle Silver Cafes in order to limit exposure.
As of March 20th, we are asking participants at our twelve Silver Cafes to sign up for home-delivered meals. This will enable us to ensure those who need meals are still receiving the nutrition they need but are limiting their exposure to individuals who may be caring the virus.
Re-training our volunteer drivers to limit contact.
One of the hallmarks of Meals on Wheels is the daily wellness check that our volunteers provide. Often times is comes with a hug or handshake. We are instructing our volunteers to evaluate their normal habits and follow these guidelines:
- Make sure you are well.
- Use hand sanitizer between deliveries.
- Keep a personal space of at least 6 feet between you and the participant.
Our goal is to keep our participants, volunteers and staff healthy and informed. Please check back for news and updates about GSC Meals on Wheels. Keep safe and Let’s Slow the Flow together!
In order to transition to more home delivery, we need to increase our volunteer force. If you are healthy and able to drive during this time, please sign up to help deliver meals.
A Lifeline That Needs Your Support
Greater Spokane Meals on Wheels delivers more than meals to vulnerable seniors across Spokane County. We are a lifeline that provides daily visits to home-bound seniors allowing them to stay in their home maintaining their independence and dignity.
