Todd County Bundled Services includes several things to help keep senior citizens and people who may be “shut-ins” more connected with the community.
Many of us have heard of Meals on Wheels, but Bundled Meals are a bit different because they are for rural delivery. Meals on Wheels is delivered within city limits.
Some of the criteria for Bundled Meals in the county include:
• Age 60 or older
• Live in rural Minnesota
• Would benefit from receiving nutritious meals and groceries.
According to Lutheran Social Services Regional Manager and Dietitian Terri Weyer, “We have a wide variety of complete meals that include an entrée, fruit and/or vegetable, bread, margarine, milk and dessert. Most meals are similar to the meals on our published menus, but we do include some breakfast options.” . . .
