Every single day, a crew of five arrives at the Evansville SWIRCA kitchen to begin preparing hundreds of meals to deliver to seniors.
17 drivers then hit the road to help the most vulnerable population stock their fridges in six different counties, traveling as far as Griffin and Cannelton.
On Friday, a drive-thru Christmas meal distribution event for seniors will take place in the SWIRCA parking lot from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., but for seniors who can't get out, Meals on Wheels is a true blessing.
On Thursday's menu: Sloppy Joes, Broccoli, and hash browns.
"This pandemic has really shook everybody up in the world you know?," said Hellen Little, area senior. "I'm thankful for the food, and it's always tasteful too."
While many organizations have had to scale back their efforts this year due to financial strains caused by the pandemic, SWIRCA has actually stepped up their efforts - delivering 22 shelf-stable meals to each senior over the summer, with plans of providing 14 additional meals to each senior heading into the colder months.
Although the Meals on Wheels program is still thriving in Evansville, over in Calhoun, Kentucky, a Wednesday fire destroyed the McLean County Senior Services building that the program operates out of - but they're persevering and moving operations over to Livermore City Hall.
