Meals on Wheels expands to downtown Lake Worth

This is a great program and good to see its expansion in the Lake Worth area. This is an article in the Palm Beach Post about some of the particulars. Click title for link.
Mary St. Clair’s kitchen is so tiny, she quips, if you turn too fast you will run into yourself.
That small space, says the 76-year-old Lake Worth resident, is actually a good thing. With limited mobility because of a knee injury and other health issues, cooking can be very daunting.
“I manage, even if it is painful. I fall very easily and have to watch every step I take. But I have to eat,” says the widow.
But things are looking up, she says gratefully. Meals on Wheels of The Palm Beaches recently expanded into downtown Lake Worth – and St. Clair will soon be receiving a hot meal five times a week.
“This will help a lot. It is one meal I won’t have to worry about,” she says.
Meals on Wheels’ foray into the Lake Worth area had been planned for awhile, explains Charlie Ring, the organization’s executive director – but it became a reality after the organization received a $70,000 grant from the Quantum Foundation.
