Meals on Wheels gets a new name in Tonawandas

The North Tonawanda Meals on Wheels has changed its name to Twin Cities Meals on Wheels to reflect its continuing role in providing meals in North Tonawanda and neighbors to the south in the City of Tonawanda.

The organization is located in North Tonawanda at 100 Ridge Road, but has long provided services to both cities.

North Tonawanda Mayor Arthur G. Pappas said the name change just made sense and he was happy to see both cities unified for an organization such as Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels volunteers provide hot meals to elderly or invalids in their communities.

"All the people working behind the scenes have done a tremendous job in providing food for those with debilitating conditions that make their everyday lives difficult," said Pappas in an announcement of the name change.

Twin Cities Meals on Wheels made the name change official this past weekend when it put up a new name plate.
