Meals on Wheels Celebrates 1,000,000 Meals Delivered

Posted: Updated:

Meals on Wheels is set to deliver its millionth meal in central Virginia this week. The organization's volunteers have been bringing meals to people in our community since 1977.

Organizers say the need for their services has increased dramatically in the past decade. Each day Meals on Wheels serves more than 200 people in Charlottesville alone. They say it is an honor to make such an impact.

Meals on Wheels Organizer Dawn Grzegorczyk said, "This is a huge milestone for our organization. A million hot meals have been delivered right here in our community to folks who would otherwise have nothing to eat."

Ann Shaffer, a volunteer since the very beginning, back in 1977, will deliver the millionth meal on Tuesday.
