Senior (60+) Frozen Meal Delivery assures that seniors in Wright County have their nutritional needs met. The Covid-19 pandemic has tripled this service because of the closings of community senior meal services.
This is what the Senior Frozen Meal delivery currently looks like:
- Three Trail Blazer Transit vans load up with bags, each filled with 5 – 10 frozen meals.
- Each van needs a volunteer to run a bag to the doorstep of about 15 residences, which takes about 3 hours.
- Generally speaking, volunteers meet at 10am at the Trailblazer office (115 Commerce Circle, Buffalo) across Hwy 55 from the Buffalo Hospital .
- However, it all depends on where and when Trailblazer is able to pick up these frozen meals, and the start time may be adjusted, if needed. Some days there are no meals available for distribution.
- Volunteers need to be flexible, and will be texted the night before to confirm the time and to notify of any van delivery cancellations
- Volunteers under the age of 17 must be accompanied with an adult.
- Each volunteer needs to bring a cell phone, as they will be calling homes while on route to notify seniors of meal delivery times.
