Press release from: EAC Network

(WESTBURY, NY) Judi Bosworth, Town of North Hempstead Supervisor, hosted a press conference April 1st at the “Yes We Can” Community Center in an effort to raise awareness for EAC Network’s Meals on Wheels program. Town Councilmembers Viviana Russell, Anna M. Kaplan, Lee R. Seeman, as well as Town Clerk Wayne H. Wink, Jr. and Nassau County Commissioner of Human Services Lisa A. Murphy were also in attendance to support the endeavor. EAC Network is the largest provider of Meals on Wheels in Nassau County to senior citizens who cannot shop or cook for themselves. Supervisor Bosworth also revealed the new Meals on Wheels marketing materials that, she hopes, will increase the town residents’ awareness of the service available to them.

“[It’s] not only food for the body, but it’s food for the soul,” Supervisor Bosworth said in regards to how imperative it is for seniors to receive nutritional meals as well as receive social interaction from the deliverers. “It takes a village to care for our youth, but it takes a village to care for seniors, too.”

Meals on Wheels relies on volunteers from the community to deliver nutritional food to homebound seniors several days a week. To promote awareness and overall wellbeing of elderly citizens, Hofstra University students recently went door-to-door in New Cassel to reach out to seniors in the area who may qualify for Meals on Wheels.

“Walking around and talking to the residents of North Hempstead solidified my belief that this program is not only needed, but welcomed,” said Alejandra Saladardi, a student volunteer and Hofstra Center for Civic Engagement Fellow. “I believe this program will be very successful in the area, and hopefully it can help as many seniors as possible.”
