Dine in to help out Meals on Wheels

A Meals on Wheels volunteer delivers food to a Westlake resident.

The Rusty Barrel, a popular neighborhood sports bar and restaurant on Center Ridge Road owned by Rusty Jesset, has begun a new community outreach program as a way to thank the community for its support. During the month of October, Westlake Meals on Wheels will receive 10% of Monday food sales between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.

For more than 30 years, Westlake Meals on Wheels has provided continuous service to our community. It is a non-profit, non-governmentally funded service whose purpose is to help people who are unable to prepare meals for themselves due to health or age related problems. Meals on Wheels provides two well-balanced meals a day, one hot and one cold, five days a week.

All meals are prepared fresh daily in the kitchen and delivered by volunteers to the recipient’s door. If for any reason they do not answer the knock or acknowledge their presence, contact is made to a designated emergency person to check on the welfare of the recipient.

All are invited to participate in this worthy fundraiser. If you are unable to attend but would like to support this cause, donations are always welcome to help offset the rising costs of food and supplies. Make checks payable to Westlake Meals on Wheels, 2239 Dover Center Rd., Westlake. Direct any questions about the program or contact us to volunteer to 440-871-2551.
