Our meals are prepared to fit into most diet plans. They are portion controlled to provide 1/3 of a senior’s RDI (required daily intake). No salt is added during cooking, they have no trans fats, and they average 800 calories a meal with 85 grams of carbohydrates. Menus are prepared by a registered dietitian and use in-season produce whenever possible.
MOWSWM Executive Director
I have been thinking about gratitude and thankfulness recently. Did you know that being thankful includes an element of relief? I didn't until I looked up the definitions of each word. I love to learn something new every day!
Here are some of the things I am grateful for:
Having met and married the love of my life, Jim;
For my little cozy house and my dog, Baldwin;
For the wonderful staff and volunteers at Meals on Wheels of SW Michigan who have devotedly come each day through the pandemic, to deliver meals to you all,
For 2020 coming to an end!
And here are some of the things I will be grateful for:
When the election is over and the calls and texts and emails end,
When spring is here again.
What are the things you are grateful for? And the things that you are thankful for or will be, with relief?
It is the time to snuggle in with a cup of tea and a good book or good movie. Be good to yourself. I read recently that the idea of self-care has grown beyond things like a massage or other pampering, to taking care of your mental and physical self. So do those relaxation exercises and breathe deeply! It is the season for gratitude and cranberries and turkey.
Be well, be safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

About Meals on Wheels of SW Michigan
Senior Nutrition Services (now Meals on Wheels of Southwestern Michigan) is an independent 501 (C) (3) which helps seniors remain in their homes by providing meals served at community sites, in restaurants, and delivered directly to clients' homes. Our goal is to nourish, support, and connect our seniors to services to help them remain living independently, safely and with dignity. Services are available in Berrien, Van Buren, and Cass counties; the Cass Co. Council on Aging provides home-delivered meals in that area.
Support from the Berrien Community Foundation includes funding from the Stephen E. Upton Love Your Community Endowment
