Mobile Meals of Toledo is currently seeking volunteers to deliver meals to the elderly, the ailing, the disabled and the homebound in the East Toledo area.

Those volunteers would pick up meals at St. Charles Mercy Hospital, 2600 Navarre Ave., Oregon. Depending on the number of deliveries, routes take about an hour to an hour and a half to complete.

“Without the help of volunteers, Mobile Meals would be unable to operate,” said Carolyn Fox, Mobile Meals associate executive director. “The meals that are delivered help our clients maintain their independence.

“And for some, the meals make it possible to remain independent and to stay in their homes,” she added.
