Tom loves music. The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and Depeche Mode are just a few of the bands he is listening to now.

Some time ago, Tom’s brother signed him up for Meals on Wheels to make sure he stayed fed. Good thing, too. Tom knows the importance of eating well, but he can’t cook for himself. He says if it wasn’t for the food you help provide, he’d be eating unhealthy snacks instead.

Tom looks forward to the vegetarian meals he receives from Meals on Wheels. His salads, veggie burgers, sweet-and-sour egg rolls and desserts hit just the right notes for him.

Tom says the volunteers who deliver his meals are always friendly and cheerful, and brighten his day.

“Meals on Wheels improves the quality of my life,” he says. “It’s nice to have someone here for you.”
