Meals on Wheels Week – October 15-19, 2018 – REALTORS® Making A Difference

October 15-19, 2018

Each year local Greater Mason City Board of REALTORS® Members join forces with the Community Kitchen of North Central Iowa to deliver Meals on Wheels to home-bound residents in Mason City for one week every October.

Executive Officer Amber Scholl reports that 15-20 local GMCBOR REALTOR® Members deliver meals to 3 routes in the Mason City area as part of the Board's continued efforts to promote community involvement & investment.  "This is a great program that we are proud to continue to support through volunteer efforts."  "It is heartwarming to see our local REALTORS® participate in programs that serve our community!"


Meals On Wheels - Seniors, new parents, adults recovering at home – anyone unable to shop or cook – can have lunch and dinner delivered every day of the week including weekends and holidays.

And unlike many such programs, we have no waiting list.  Good nutrition is the key to good health, especially for someone who is home-bound.

Our meals provide 1/3 of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamins and minerals for an older adult. Volunteers deliver over 220 meals, Monday through Friday, to those in need.

Frozen weekend meals are delivered on Fridays.
Volunteers give clients a break from the isolation of a very lonely existence.
Many times the daily visit from the volunteer is their only contact with the outside world.
A meal and a smile can make all the difference!
