Pupils from Levenmouth Academy deliver Meals on Wheels
Pupils from Levenmouth Academy are helping to celebrate National Meals On Wheels Week in Fife. Four young people volunteered to accompany the Meals on wheels drivers as they deliver hot meals around the Kingdom.
Chloe Gourlay a fourth year student said: “It was awesome! I really enjoyed going out in the van to make the deliveries and meet some of the older residents Fife. The drivers have a lot of people to visit and meals to deliver but they are always friendly and I could see why the Meals on wheels service has such a good reputation and is so much appreciated. I saw lots of happy smiles and laughter and it was a great experience.”
Fife’s Meals On Wheels Service not only provides a hot two course lunch for over 700 residents daily but an important contact for some clients who may not otherwise have the chance for social interaction.
Keith Breasley Service Manager said: “Even in Fife Council not everyone knows about this vital service to provide balanced and tasty meals to older people. So this week we are holding tasting sessions for council staff in all our facilities. Not only can employees see and taste the food the service provides but will have the opportunity of finding out more about Meals On Wheels and the benefits it offers.”
