Meals on Wheels opens two new neighborhood dining sites in Sanford

SANFORD, Fla. — With inflation still on the rise, the cost of living day by day seems to be impossible for many people.


This is especially true for senior citizens who may be living on a fixed income.

However, a local nonprofit is trying to make things a little easier for the elderly community.

Meals on Wheels has opened two new locations in Seminole County.

The new locations are at Midway Safe Harbor Center, at 2405 Rightway in Sanford and Westside Community Center Boys and Girls Club of West Sanford, at 919 S Persimmon Avenue in Sanford.

“Meals on Wheels, Etc. is known for feeding seniors through home delivery, but our Neighborhood Dining sites are equally as important to our mission,” said Mike McKee, executive director of Meals on Wheels, Etc. “We want nutritious meals, friendship and community to be accessible to seniors in every corner of Seminole County.”
