Meals on Wheels
11Apr 2017

Meals on Wheels celebrates 20 years of providing seniors and the housebound with a lovely hot, nutritious meals, and of course, Cayman Turtle Centre with around 95 % Caymanian employees was pleased to get involved by volunteering to collect money for the service. Lots of funds are needed to provide the thousands of meals that the service distributes in the Cayman community, and the crew at CTC took it in turns to stand outside Cost U Less in West Bay, dressed in their bright orange T-shirts, to ask for donations, right from early morning until the end of the afternoon. CTC tour guide, Kevin Martinez said: “What I did on Friday was to help out with meals on Wheels collection – asking for donations for the elderly so we can support our elderly who don’t have enough food. The foundation of Meals on Wheels is fantastic – that is why I would like to help them. I would like to keep doing it, too. I would recommend it to anyone,” he said. India Narcisse-Elliott, CTC’s Marketing Manager and a long-time meals on Wheels volunteer said: “I have been involved with Meals on Wheels for about 20 years. My grandmother actually started the programme, so its very near-and-dear to my heart. On top of that I’ve been a volunteer in and out of the Kitchen, whether it's delivering meals or collecting on their collection days; helping to plan some of their events. I’m a big believer in giving back. Meals on wheels is important because it feeds the elderly and shut-ins in our communities. It’s a service that is being utilized, and its growing every day and I think its pivotal that we as a community need to support those who have come before us.
