My Health is Improved

Carol Johnston, Home Delivered Meals recipient

“You guys literally saved my life… At first, I didn’t want to accept the food because I didn’t want to take the place of someone who needed it more. Even though I was already scheduled to have surgery, my doctor postponed it because he was too nervous about my blood test results and said that they needed to improve before he could do the surgery.”

After receiving nutritious meals at home on a consistent basis, she saw amazing results in her lab tests for three consecutive months. In fact, her doctor teased her by asking, “Are you bribing the lab technicians – that can’t be you! What are you doing?” Carol matter-of-factly explained, “I think a lot of it has to do with 30th Street Senior Center.” Needless to say, she was delighted when her surgery was rescheduled. “I have no complaints at all. The food portions are the perfect size, which makes the doctor happy that I’m eating healthy and my blood pressure has returned to normal.”

    It Saved Me

    Douglas Martin, 30th Street Senior Center participant

    Douglas Martin has been coming to the center a few times a week for over 10 years. He has an easy commute since he lives right next door — 88 steps away to be exact! As a retired construction worker and electrician, he found himself on a tight budget and decided to check out the center.

    “I made friends right away and started taking classes like Spanish and piano lessons, but I didn’t get very far with them. Then I found the computer lab,” says Doug. He is now one of the monitors in that same lab so that he can help other seniors. Doug enjoys the lunchtime social aspect and has made many friends over the past decade. Doug says the greatest benefit he receives is the food. “It saved me,” he says.
