Meals on Wheels

Rock Spring has had a long-term commitment to providing volunteer drivers for Meals on Wheels in Arlington. Working in teams of two, Rock Springers are responsible for five MOW routes on the first and third Fridays of each month. We deliver a hot lunch and a bag dinner plus drinks to homebound individuals who are unable to shop for and/or prepare meals for themselves.

In total, Rock Springers deliver over 1500 meals per year. Meals On Wheels has been delivering meals in Northern Virginia since 1971. It is run almost exclusively by volunteers. Clients are usually homebound due to a long term handicap or because of short term convalescence. Those with sufficient income pay the amount that their food costs MOW. Clients with limited income pay according to their means.

If you are able to commit to one Friday per month (11:00am-1:00pm), or if you want to help on an occasional basis as a sub, contact Lisa Trangsrud: LTrangsrud@hotmail.com.

How do our internal preferences influence the way we operate in the outside world?

by Laura Martin

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
