New Partnership with Berkeley Meals on Wheels
We are happy to announce that BPC has begun a partnership with Berkeley Meals on Wheels. Five 8th grade students pioneered the school’s involvement by delivering meals to three homes in our neighborhood. Equipped with a map and information about each client, the students walked a preset route knocking on doors and speaking directly with the recipients. An important aspect of in-person delivery is the opportunity to conduct a “wellness check” to ensure that these food-insecure clients are doing ok. Many clients live alone and are otherwise isolated, so these human interactions are often especially welcome. The current plan is to have rotating groups of students participate in weekly meal deliveries.
