EXCERPT: PRESIDENT AND CEO UPDATE
As I reflect on the last year, I am amazed at all we accomplished together for older adults. Together we touched the lives of almost 6,000 seniors. I want to extend a sincere thank you to all our sponsors, donors, partners, staff, volunteers, and community friends – the great work accomplished by Meals on Wheels Western Michigan would not be possible without you.
This year saw an expansion of our senior pantry, doubling its space and creating an opportunity to introduce new programming and increase our ability to purchase more healthy foods for older adults. We are now working on new donor and vendor partnerships to bring more consistency to the foods we offer that seniors need most.
Inclusive Performance Strategies began working with our team this year to develop a solid base to build our DEI strategies to ensure that no senior is hungry or forgotten in our community. Our vision is to ensure that we nourish all seniors in ways that are relevant to their individual needs.
