100,000 dinners and still going strong!

Passage West Meals on Wheels has been delivering hot meals to people in our community for more than 40 years.  The initiative was one of the first projects undertaken by the Passage Association for the Care of the Elderly [PACE] shortly after it was founded in September 1978 and has made a huge difference in the lives of many elderly people and those living alone in our community over the intervening years.  Meals are prepared fresh each day from Monday to Saturday by a team of volunteers and delivered by a fleet of volunteer drivers to people through the Harbour Parishes to Rochestown, Passage West, Monkstown, Shanbally and Ringaskiddy. Not only do these drivers deliver a warm meal, which is always welcome, but they ensure a little human contact and conversation for those who are housebound that helps them to feel connected to our community.

 

Chatting with a volunteer driver lately, he calculated that our local Meals on Wheels has cooked and delivered in excess of 100,000 meals in our community since it was founded.  That is a truly incredible achievement and we salute everyone involved: volunteers both past and present, those who are still with us and those who have passed on to their eternal reward. Thank you for the constancy of your service and the difference you make in the life of our community. Thank you for everything you do and everything you are.  You are a living reminder of the truth that a community’s greatest assets are not buildings or material resources but rather hearts willing to love, ears willing to listen and hands willing to help. May you continue to be blessed in all that you do.
