The 3 Village Meals on Wheels Board of Directors thanks the Stony Brook Community Church Youth Group for their support through the Empty Bowl Project. In April 2019 the Youth Group held a Soup Supper and donated the proceeds to 3 Village Meals on Wheels.
3 Village Meals, whose mission is to deliver meals to the homebound, is not government funded so this contribution is extremely helpful.
It is great to see the youth of our community organizing an outreach program to support those in need, and we thank them.

3V MEALS ON WHEELS thanks local youth.
Many of you are familiar with the Three Village Meals on Wheels organization which services homebound clients in our community. Meals on Wheels supplies hot and cold meals five days a week. We rarely cancel delivery but when road conditions get too dangerous for our volunteers, delivery is stopped. On days such as these, the clients are lucky to have a “blizzard bag” on hand.
Blizzard bags contain non-perishable items for our clients and are delivered to the clients in the fall prior to winter conditions. We are very fortunate to have had some local youth helping our organization by supplying us with these blizzard bags. Our organization is not government funded so these contributions are extremely helpful.
The Leo Club from Earl L. Vandermeulen High School supplied us with a stock of blizzard bags. They have been doing this since 1989.
The board of directors of Meals on Wheels would like to thank them and their adviser, Brian Chalmers for this generous contribution.
Another local group also supplied us with blizzard bags and we thank Deidre Doran, Teen Connect members and the Emma S. Clark Memorial Library staff for their contribution.
Our clients were very appreciative of having this food on the days we did not deliver meals. It is great to see the youth of our community organizing outreach programs to support those in need, and we thank them.
