No matter why a person is homebound – chronic illness, frailty, disability, recent surgery or other physical or mental health issues they face two major difficulties: poor nutrition and loneliness. Meals on Wheels West helps prevent both by "Delivering More Than a Meal" to homebound people of all ages and incomes. Learn how they started, grew, and continually improve on their Community Connections Friendly Calling program and how it complements their meal delivery services. 
Topics Discussed: 
  • Structuring a friendly calling program with meal delivery 
  • Client recruitment and onboarding 
  • Using "Beautiful Questions" in conversation
  • Volunteer management & training
  • Data and technology in decision making
