What if nobody is home for the delivery?

To ensure the clients’ safety and security, if a client does not answer their door, volunteers have been instructed to contact the Meals on Wheels Coordinator who will try and reach the client by phone. If the client cannot be reached by phone, the coordinator will telephone the designated emergency contact for that client. We encourage our clients to call us beforehand with instructions if they know they’ll be away during delivery hours.
