In light of the current stay-at-home order issued by Governor Lujan-Grisham, Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque has moved to once-per-week deliveries of frozen meals starting on Thursday, March 26th and running at least through Friday, May 1st.
Need meals? We can help! We have both regular and emergency spots available on a first come, first served basis.
All volunteers will continue to practice social distancing delivery methods including:
- Keep at least six (6) feet of distance between you and the client at all times.
- Meals on Wheels is providing plastic bags. Please use this bag to hang food on the doorknob of the client’s home.
- Knock on the clients’ door, and step back at least six (6) feet
- Please wait for the client to retrieve their meal – we cannot leave food unattended (if the client does not come to the door, please try calling them. If there is still no answer, remove the food and let MOW know about the missed delivery)
- Non-latex gloves (provided):
- Change gloves between each delivery – while they protect your hands, they can still carry and transfer bacteria and viruses on their surface.
- Under no circumstances should you touch your face while wearing gloves.
- Hand sanitizer (provided):
- MoW will provide hand sanitizer for you to use between deliveries and before touching items (as available).
- Masks (provided, as needed):
- If you have a personal mask, we ask that you wear it while delivering.
- If you require a mask to enter a home, please let us know and we will provide you with one (if available).
We still need YOUR help! Please consider donating to assist us with increased costs and higher demand.
