Sen. Carper delivers meals to Sussex seniors

Senator Carper joins the Meals on Wheels delivery team to draw attention to the CHEER Nutrition Program.  
More than 1,000 meals are prepared every weekday at the program’s kitchen in Georgetown.  That food is then sent to nine nutrition sites throughout the county every weekday.  Volunteers pick-up and deliver individual meals to nearly 500 clients.  Last year, CHEER provided 126,476 meals to seniors, allowing them to stay independent and in their homes as they grow older.
