Rick once caught a huge Steelhead Rainbow Trout and loves to tell the story. He is so proud of his catch that there is a picture on the wall of the home he shares with a group in Kitchener. A true fisherman, he appreciates the variety of fish options on the Meals on Wheels menu.
Originally from the Galt area of Cambridge, he spent 55 years there before moving to Kitchener six months ago. He said the transition to get his meals transferred from Cambridge to Kitchener was easy - all he had to do was call and tell the office about his move.
Rick was first introduced to Meals on Wheels by his sister in 2012. Rick’s health issues had made it difficult for him to get groceries and prepare his own meals. The Meals on Wheels program eased what would have been an additional burden in his life.
"It's hard to cook something every day. I look forward to Meals on Wheels!"
Rick thinks the food is wonderful, the portions are just right, and he loves that the program is reliable and convenient. With Meals on Wheels, he and his loved ones do not have to worry about him getting the nutrition he needs to live at home with independence and dignity.
"I know it's always going to be here," he said.
Meals on Wheels delivers hot, nutritious meals to a variety of groups, including seniors, people with disabilities, or those just released from the hospital who need a helping hand.
If you would like more information about the program for yourself or for a loved one, please call our office at 519-772-8787. Thank you Rick, for sharing your story!
