George Fletcher has been driving hot meals to homebound Ann Arbor residents for
10 years. He does not have a fixed route and only drives about once each week, but
whenever he gets a call from the office staff saying that they need another volunteer,
George is always ready to help.
"As long as I'm able, I'm happy to do it," he said cheerfully. Motor Meals of Ann
Arbor was started in 1974, and currently serves approximately 150 people who are
homebound and unable to prepare a balanced meal for themselves. Both hot and cold
meals are served Monday through Friday, from 12 to 2 p.m. Motor Meals offers a dia-
betic diet, as well as high-protein diets for AIDS patients and Ensure Plus for those at
nutritional risk. Motor Meals is a nonprofit community service organization partially
supported and funded by the University Hospitals and is always looking for volunteers.
Interested students may call Motor Meals at 763-2377.
