Interfaith Community Services has openings to deliver meals for Northwest homebound seniors and individuals who are unable to cook for themselves.

To recommend someone for services, people may call 297- 6049. For more information, go to www.icstucson.org.

ICS provides affordable, nourishing meals each weekday to homebound people in the region. Meals are tailored to special diets, and are prepared by health-care facilities such as Oro Valley Hospital.

One area resident is caring for her father, who has macular degeneration. Through the ICS program, a volunteer delivers meals while his daughter is at work.

“I don’t know what I would do without the services of ICS,” she said. “Not only does Dad receive a hot meal, I know that there is also someone checking in on him while I am away at work.”
