When it comes to impacting the community, JBLE delivers

Volunteers have an enormous impact on the health and well-being of their local community. Service members at Joint Base Langley-Eustis have embodied this belief and continuously find opportunities to get involved. “Meals on Wheels” is often used generically to refer to the home-delivered meals program, which is geared towards promoting better health, improving nutrition and reducing isolation and loneliness that impacts home-bound senior citizens. With limited or no access to families, friends, or proper nutrition, the daily meal delivery not only provides seniors with a nutritious meal but also a daily safety check by the volunteers. Over 280 homes are delivered meals up to three times a day by Meals on Wheels volunteers, with JBLE volunteers responsible for 32 of those 280 homes.
