Older Californian Nutrition Program Success Stories!

"I suffer from spinal stenosis and when I stand for long periods of time, my back begins to hurt. It is very difficult to prepare food when you use a walker and try to prepare yourself a meal. The Burbank Senior Nutrition Home Delivered Meal program has been very beneficial to helping me maintain a better quality of life. I know that I am eating a nutritious and well-balanced meal every day. Their food tastes good and they are very generous. I look forward to receiving my meals and seeing the friendly staff (especially Diane) and volunteers. The program has been wonderful! Thank you HDM!" - R. Keech (Client)

I am very thankful for the services." - S. Green (Client)
