SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) - Some students at Bishop Ludden High School put together “Blizzard Food Packs” for Meals on Wheels on Saturday. The packs will be delivered to local homebound seniors and disabled people should a major winter storm ever hit the area.
The meals are packed with prepared food and cans of fruits and vegetables.
Bishop Ludden held a food drive to collect enough items for a balanced nutritious meal for more than 400 people in need.
“Hopefully they're very thankful, I know that they would go hungry without these meals, many of them, that's why they're getting the meals, They're homebound, they can't get out, they don't have somebody to help them and provide meals on a daily basis,” said Meals on Wheels Executive Director Mason Haufman.
“I mean, I have people in my family that are old and can't get food themselves so it's nice to help out other people too,” said Bishop Ludden senior Nicholas Clarke.
Meals on Wheels distributes nearly 200,000 meals to 800 people each year.
The “Blizzard Packs” will be distributed on Monday.
