Thank you Mastro Imports
Mastro Import, our local Subaru dealer in Sanford, and Meals on Wheels, Etc. partnered again this year to “Share the Love”. This is an initiative of Subaru National and Meals on Wheels America. From November 10 to December 30, employees of Mastro Imports delivered meals to our clients in Seminole County in a new Subaru, of course.
Darden Foundation recently awarded us $10,000 for senior meals in Seminole County. Thank you, Darden, for being a fantastic corporate supporter of elderly services in our community!
Your donation to Meals on Wheels, Etc. will help provide nutritious meals to elderly homebound residents who are not eating proper meals or are going hungry for one or more days each month because their small retirement income will not cover all the costs of basic living expenses.
Help your senior neighbors maintain their independence without worrying about malnutrition!

We are happy to announce that Mastro Imports/Subaru will be partnering with us again during the 2014 “Share the Love” campaign. This is a national program sponsored by Subaru of America, Inc. and Meals on Wheels of America.
Between November 20 and January 2, Subaru will donate $250 for every new vehicle sold or leased to the customer’s choice of charity. We hope you choose Meals on Wheels, Etc. as your charity! $250 can provide over 70 nutritious meals for malnourished seniors right here in Seminole County.
The new faces of hunger in Seminole County are elderly people who are too proud to ask for help. Typically, they run out of money at the end of the month and choose to go without eating until the next small retirement check arrives.
The number of seniors who face the threat of hunger, or are actually hungry, is rising. Meals on Wheels, Etc. is committed to ending this hunger. Through our kitchen operation, fresh meals are prepared daily. They are appetizing and fulfill the nutritional requirements for older adults.
Unfortunately, there is an alarming number of seniors who are becoming food insecure (not sure if they will have physical or economic access to sufficient and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs), The fight to end this hunger will only worsen – but thanks to wonderful volunteers and community donors, we will continue to aggressively pursue our goal to make sure that “no Seminole County Senior goes hungry.”
Our Summer, 2014 Newsletter contains our thank-you to some of the many people and organizations that volunteer their time and resources to help Meals on Wheels, Etc. to keep critical services available for the elderly in Seminole County. We are so fortunate to have individuals, companies and civic groups who, like us, care deeply for those in our community who have given so much in the past and now need our assistance.
