Every weekday, a group of volunteers appears at Traill College to pick up Meals on Wheels food. Between 50 and 70 meals are served up each day by Traill College kitchen staff for this program.
Pat Osborne, an Aramark employee who manages most of the Meals on Wheels duties, packs up buns, soup, hot meals, sandwiches, desserts and more each day for delivery to local people who cannot easily get out of their homes. Meals on Wheels volunteer drivers pick up the packages and deliver meals each day.
Traill kitchen staff have been involved with the program for four years. Prior to that, meals were distributed out of the Peter Robinson College kitchen for a few years.
