Meals on Wheels clients to receive royal treatment

Meals on Wheels will get a hand delivering meals this Friday from some of the state’s crowned royalty, of sorts.

Taking part in the special March on Meals delivery will be Miss North Carolina, McKenzie Faggart; Miss Rowan County, Mary Scott Norris; and Miss Rowan County’s Outstanding Teen, Taylor Loyd.

The young women will take meals to clients to demonstrate and encourage community service.

March for Meals is a month-long celebration designed to rally communities around seniors who depend on Meals on Wheels for nutritious meals Monday through Friday.

Meals on Wheels volunteers offer a friendly greeting and check on the welfare of each individual.

The nonprofit Meals on Wheels of Rowan provides meals to clients at cost, using a sliding scale based on ability to pay. Funding is provided by donations from individuals, businesses, foundations and the United Way.

Volunteer and referral information is available through the Meals on Wheels website www.mowrowannc.org; by emailing mowrowan@charlottetwcbc.com or by calling the Meals on Wheels office at 704-633- 0352.

Meals on Wheels of Rowan is a United Way member agency.
