Longtime Meals on Wheels volunteer Mary Sayre.

Cleveland Heights Meals on Wheels began in 1978 as a cooperative effort between local churches and the Cleveland Heights Office on Aging. The program’s volunteers deliver meals to Cleveland Heights senior residents. A few of the original volunteers have remained active in the organization for all of its 30-plus years.

One of these dedicated volunteers is Mary Sayre. Active since 1982, she has delivered meals, acted as volunteer coordinator, served on the board of directors, and held every office, including president. Volunteers like her are the heart of this organization that continues to serve seniors in Cleveland Heights.

Meals are prepared at the McGregor Home, heated and packaged at Fairmount Presbyterian Church, and delivered around the noon hour on most weekdays. The cost for a hot meal and a cold lunch delivered together is $6.25 per day and you must be at home to receive your meal.
