A pair of Langdon volunteers want to bring food to those who can’t get enough nutritious meals by themselves.
Linda Fielder and Marilyn Klotz have spearheaded a campaign to bring Meals on Wheels to Langdon residents starting this month.
With support from the Langdon OK Club, Family & Community Support Services Rocky View, the Mountain View Credit Union and the Langdon Community Church, the women have made their first deliveries of frozen meals to people in need.
“I’ve always thought it was a great program so I’m really excited to be able to offer it in Langdon,” Fielder said. “We are trying to explore other ways to get the word out there.
“It’s an organization that I personally wanted to volunteer with for quite some time.”
The ordering process is simple and can be done through their website at langdonmealsonwheels.com or by calling or emailing the duo with the information provided there.
The deadline for orders are the first and third Mondays of the month, and delivery is the following Tuesday at the Langdon Community Church. Of course, the women will deliver the goods if needed.
Fielder and Klotz started the process this spring and did their research on how to operate the program. They contacted Meals on Wheels volunteers from surrounding communities to get a sense of how it works.
Now they are ready to roll, and they just need customers. Of course, they fully expect the service to pick up and will look to add weekly deliveries with more volunteers down the road if the demand is there.
It’s a service the pair is proud to offer anyone who needs it.
“It’s totally volunteer at this point,” Fielder said. “We want to be able to offer it to the people of Langdon if they want it, not just for seniors but for anybody who feels they want to have some frozen meals on hand.
“If you would like to get some frozen meals, it’s open to anybody.”
