Since last year’s storm, Meals on Wheels San Antonio staff said they’ve worked to ensure clients aren’t left wondering if they’ll have food in a similar scenario.
“We now constantly reference almanacs to help forecast what the need might be for our clients,” said Forrest Myane, chief strategy and development officer. “This year, we distributed a five-meal, shelf-stable box, along with water, an extreme weather tip sheet and an emergency thermal blanket in mid-January to make sure everyone was prepared.”
Myane said the deliveries were just in time with shutdowns the first weekend of February. The boxes were delivered to almost 4,000 people who depend on the nonprofit for daily nutrition.
