Memorial contributions in memory of Helen Smigle

SSOBC’s Home Delivered Meals (HDMs) program, also known as  'Meals on Wheels', is dedicated to providing seniors with the necessary nutritional support to protect them against food insecurity, and to help them continue to live independent and fulfilling lives. Residents participating in the HDMs program must demonstrate a need for services. Meals are delivered countywide to qualifying seniors in their homes. Meals are prepared fresh daily in a certified commercial kitchen, Monday thru Friday by experienced cooks. Diverse menus are developed and geared toward senior nutrition. All meals meet state and federal nutritional requirements.

Our professional, caring nutrition drivers are instructed and certified in mandated CPR, 1st. Aid, Defensive Driving, Blood Borne Pathogens, and also have Sensitivity for the Elderly training. Meals are delivered from specially designed temperature-controlled vehicles directly to our consumers while providing a courtesy welfare check ensuring the wellbeing of the seniors we serve. Shelf-stable meals are distributed for severe weather days when we are unable to deliver.

For many seniors, SSOBC’s HDMs are the first service seniors request when seeking assistance to help them stay in their own homes and live independently. Many seniors live alone and do not have family or neighbors to help shop for or prepare meals. SSOBC’s HDM services allow seniors, who have difficulty preparing meals for themselves, healthy meal alternatives. Our HDMs can be heated in microwaves or reheated easily in ovens if that’s the senior’s preference.

SSOBC currently has ten delivery routes and is considering adding an eleventh in an effort to meet the growing need. In addition to
HMDs, meals are also served at 10 congregate dining centers throughout Belmont County. The meals served at our senior centers not only lets seniors enjoy nutritious meals, but allows them to do so in the company of other seniors.

Helen believed in the mission and work of the 'Meals on Wheels' program. Please consider making a donation in her memory
