For years, the well-recognized program Meals on Wheels, based in the Tri-County Office on Aging, has provided meals and other services for many of the area’s elderly and disabled.

Ruth Pell, program director for our local Meals on Wheels, explains the crucial services they provide and discusses the increased need, both for meals and for volunteers to administer them.
