THERESA CAPUTO RIDES WITH MEALS ON WHEELS
On April 2, TLC’s Long Island Medium aired an episode entitled “Victoria’s Test” that featured EAC Network’s very own Meals on Wheels program, from meal preparation to delivery. Theresa Caputo is a longtime supporter of Meals on Wheels. At various live readings, she ends the night with a heartfelt description of Meals on Wheels services, and raises money in support of the program. She is not only passionate about helping people connect with their deceased loved ones, but also about helping our vulnerable seniors.
In the episode, Theresa went to Winthrop Hospital with our Meals on Wheels staff and prepared meals with program volunteers, who love working with our clients. “It has been most heartwarming and rewarding being a part of Meals on Wheels,” said Peggy Milonas, a Meals on Wheels volunteer. Each meal delivered by Meals on Wheels is nutritionally balanced, and the meals are overseen by a dietician. While working, Theresa did a reading with a Winthrop employee.
After the reading and preparing meals, Theresa joined Sam Hill, one of our dispatchers, in a Meals on Wheels van. They traveled to a client’s home to deliver a meal with a smile.
“We are so grateful for Theresa’s continued support over the years, said Mary Coyle, Program Director for Meals on Wheels. “We are very appreciative of her generosity and we had a fun day with her and her crew.”
