We bring together a broad spectrum of races, ethnicities and nationalities. While meals are open to all, regardless of residence, more than half of those served are from Malden. The evening meals provide an ideal time for BOL to link local residents to additional resources, including healthcare and emergency fuel assistance.
BOL provides special celebration dinners for Thanksgiving, Christmas/Chanukah and Easter/Passover, which fills the gap left by no holiday Meals on Wheels deliveries to the elderly. BOL’s Thanksgiving and Christmas events in 2012, each served 900+ meals, including almost 200 meals delivered to homeless families in motels and 300 meals delivered to shut-in elderly residents. In addition, BOL distributed 400 turkeys to low-income families.
