On Mayors for Meals Day March 20, elected officials across the country showed their support for the Meals on Wheels program in their city by delivering meals to seniors and homebound residents, including all eight communities of Hamilton County.

“Meals on Wheels does a great job every day,” Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear said as he helped load a car with prepared food. “I’m just happy to participate. It highlights what they do every day.”

Ditslear has participated in the annual campaign for many years because he likes it.

“I enjoy visiting with the people. It is very apparent of their appreciation (of Meals on Wheels) when I visit,” he said.

Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County is a charitable, tax-exempt organization that provides meal delivery to elderly, disabled and homebound residents, regardless of age or income, who are unable to prepare a meal for themselves. Meals are prepared in state-approved healthcare facilities and designed by a certified registered dietitian. The primary goal is to help clients remain independently living in their own homes for as long as possible.

Volunteers deliver more than 52,000 meals each year to clients in all eight communities of Hamilton County. Drivers donate their time, vehicle and gas to extend a helping hand and check on the well-being of clients who receive meals.

“It’s a great way to give back to the community,” volunteer Greg Flood said.
