More than a meal for owners

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“Many clients call on a regular basis when they are in need of more pet food. It is our hope that with the support of the community and grants, we can continue this program for many years to come.”

Donations also may be made online by visiting the Meals on Wheels of Norman website. Donors are asked to indicate “Animeals Program” in the subject line of the check or comment box through online payment.

Meals on Wheels of Norman delivers noontime nutritious meals to the ill, disabled and increase in the number of clients they serve, reaching more than 300 clients per day.

Over the past year, the organization has seen that a significant two-third of the clients can only afford $1 per meal or cannot afford to pay at all. Meals on Wheels pays an average amount of $20,000 per month for food costs alone.

Programs such as the Animeals Pet Food Program assist the organization in providing additional resources to clients to alleviate worry and concern in other aspects of their lives.
