New Meals on Wheels van helps feed seniors
NEW HYDE PARK — The EAC Network received a new van for their Meals on Wheels program as a result of donations from PSEG Long Island.
PSEG Long Island, local officials, and community members helped reveal the EAC Network’s new van on Thursday.
“They deliver meals in all kinds of weather. And they do more than just food. They touch the hearts of people whose age and health have left them so much alone,” says Carol O’Neill.
Thousands in Nassau County already count on the program for food, nutrition education, and friendly visitors. With the help of PSEG Long Island, the EAC Network will now be able to reach many more with their van that will help assist food insecure seniors.
“For many of our seniors, food is not their first priority, especially when they’re dealing with other household expenses and medical needs,” says Judi Bosworth.
According to the EAC Network, they’ll be able to take 75 houses off of their waiting list with the help of the new van.
