Pam Carter, Program Manager for Adult Protective Services and Public Guardian,

drivers help deliver lunchtime meals one day each week to homebound adults ages
60 years or older in El Dorado County. For many of those served, the daily
contact with volunteers is as vital as the meal, according to Green. For more
information about the Senior Nutrition Program, the annual meeting or ways to get
involved as a volunteer, please call Senior Nutrition at (530) 621-6160.
