Del Mar council honors longtime Meals-on-Wheels volunteer

The Del Mar City Council recently recognized Rachel Reed’s longtime commitment to Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc.

“Rachel Reed has provided 30 years of dedicated volunteer service delivering meals and creating customized birthday cards for seniors in her community,” Mayor Sherryl Parks said when presenting the Del Mar resident with a proclamation during the April 18 City Council meeting.

For more than 55 years, Meals-on-Wheels has contributed to the overall well-being of seniors by providing regular nutrition and daily contact with a caring volunteer. Staff and volunteers often develop friendships with the seniors, as well as provide regular nutrition and daily safety checks.

“Seniors are one of the largest growing segments of our population and good and accessible nutrition is a major factor in keeping seniors healthy and independent,” Parks said. “l, Sherryl Parks, mayor of the city of Del Mar, on behalf of the entire City Council, hereby recognize Rachel Reed and Meals-on-Wheels for their many contributions and positive impact on the quality of life of the citizens of the Del Mar.”
