Fresh food for all

Posted on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 10:19 am

Bay Aging launched its fresh produce program in Westmoreland at Parker Run Apartments with the help of the special volunteer W. Carroll Evans, a 92-year-old who has been a Meals on Wheels volunteer for over 20 years and his daughter, Cynthia Daiger, the legislative assistant to Delegate Margaret Ransone.

“When I heard my daughter was joining Bay Aging to deliver meals, I jumped at the opportunity to join them,” said Evans. “It is such a rewarding experience to give those in need something to eat and seeing the smiles on their faces.”

The father-daughter team joined Bay Aging’s director of community programs, Jennifer Beck, to deliver nearly four pounds of fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers to Meals on Wheels recipients at the complex.

For many seniors, it’s difficult to add a steady supply of fresh fruits and vegetables to their diets because of financial or mobility constraints.
