Assemblyman Schnall Lauds Meals on Wheels’ Vital Work Following “Eye-Opening” Volunteer Experience

Assemblyman Avi Schnall recently dedicated his time to volunteer with Meals on Wheels of Ocean County, known for its commitment to delivering nutritious meals to seniors in need. His experience with the program offered him a profound insight into the essential services it provides beyond just food delivery.

“Volunteering with Meals on Wheels was an eye-opening experience,” Schnall remarked. “It’s so much more than a meal delivery service; it’s a vital connection to the outside world for those who may otherwise be isolated.”

The Assemblyman was particularly moved by the personal stories of the seniors he met, many of whom live alone and rely on the program not just for their nutritional needs but also for much-needed social interaction.

“For many of the seniors I had the privilege to meet, the visit from Meals on Wheels is the highlight of their day. For some, it’s the only human interaction they have. It’s a lifeline in every sense of the word,” Schnall explained.

“Meals on Wheels does an incredible job with the resources they have, but there’s always a greater need. It’s not just about delivering food; it’s about delivering hope, companionship, and a sense of belonging to our community’s most vulnerable,” he added.
