Betty’s Story

In Their Own Words - Meals on Wheels & Roving Pantry Client

The matriarch of a couple of business owners in Wichita, and now with 12 great grandkids she will proudly name, Betty Mendoza has been able to stay in her own home with support from Senior Services programs Meals on Wheels and Roving Pantry. Here she is pictured receiving her weekly grocery and smile delivery. Betty shares below the benefit that she has received from these programs.

“If it wasn’t for Roving Pantry or Meals on Wheels, I know I would be in a nursing home”
“I feel blessed”
“The only place I can go right now is to the doctor”
“Having Roving Pantry deliver groceries for me saves me physically, mentally, and financially.”
“I miss when my Meals on Wheels volunteers could enter my home and chat”
“My Monday volunteer Susan always cracks the door open just to check on me”
“I think of the volunteers that come by with my deliveries as family”
“One lady was such an inspiration to me, she would deliver Meals on Wheels on oxygen with her husband. One day I looked in the car and I didn’t see her. I cried that day.”
