RELC has provided a meal delivery team for the Arlington County Meals on Wheels program since the 1970’s. Meals are delivered to the homes of participants (typically elderly or disabled) who are unable to prepare meals for themselves. The amount charged for the meals is determined on a sliding scale based on the recipient’s ability to pay.
RELC’s delivery team handles 4 routes on the 2nd Thursday of each month. Every 3rd month, on the 5th Thursday of the month we also have a 5th Route. On delivery days drivers meet at Arlington Presbyterian Church in Ballston at 11:00 a.m. to pick up meals. It typically takes 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete delivery and return coolers to the Church. Current delivery team members are Ed & Anita Nolen, Randy Brooke, Dave & Melody Zeigler, and Steve Sapp. Our substitute drivers are Charlie and Judy Hughes, Heidi and Rosalie Dech and Cindy Reese.
We’re always looking for new or additional drivers, or substitute drivers to handle a route when a regular driver is unavailable. If you’re interested either in handling a route or being a substitute driver please contact Steve Sapp at 703–943-0459.
