This week’s weather has brought significant snowfall followed by predicted dangerous wind chills throughout the Twin Cities. In situations such as these, staff at our neighborhood programs must consider the safety of our volunteers and clients when making decisions about whether the day’s deliveries will go out.
In late fall, our neighborhood programs deliver shelf-stable meals in Blizzard Boxes for use during times when our volunteers are unable to deliver. Some of our neighborhood programs are also delivering extra meals this week that can be reheated if/when deliveries can’t be made.
We’re updating this list as we receive news of delivery cancellations. If you’re a volunteer or client, you can also check with your neighborhood program about the status of this week’s deliveries.
Neighborhood Programs closed Thursday, Jan. 31:
CROSS Meals on Wheels
Edina Meals on Wheels

Winter weather safety
If you live near people who you know may be vulnerable, this week would be a great time to check in on them (assuming you can do so safely!). You may also find these cold weather safety tips useful as well.
