The Meals on Wheels program in Frostburg, Md. will deliver its last meals next month. The program is shutting down due to a lack of volunteers.
Dick Koch, who runs the Frostburg Meals on Wheels, says the last meals will be delivered to about 40 clients on Dec. 31. Dick Koch's wife, Sharon, says the program has run out of volunteers as most have gotten older and can't handle the work anymore.
Dick Koch says their version of the program, which began in 1974, is modeled on the national Meals On Wheels, but isn't affiliated with the group and doesn't receive government funding.
Those receiving the meals pay $16 a week to get a hot and cold meal for five days a week, including holidays.
The director of the Allegheny County Area Agency on Aging says a couple of other programs might be able to help deliver meals when Frostburg's Meals on Wheels shuts down.
