Dear Clients,   June 4,2012

We at Meals on Wheels are concerned about your welfare in whatever
we do. Lately, we have been concerned about the requirements of the
State of Maryland and Montgomery County that hot and cold meals are
at certain temperatures to be healthful to you. We know that as we have
been working with the vendor, it has been disconcerting to you that the
meals have been hot, then cold and now frozen. We also know that this
has been hard for you to adapt to and that it is generally unsatisfactory
for you. However, right now the dinner meal is at an acceptable
temperature for the government agencies.

We think that delivering the mealsfrozen for some of you, actually puts
you in harm‘s way more than delivering a hot meal that isn’t really hot
enough. Leaving the frozen meal out to thaw and warm to room
temperature is unhealthful. If there is something that we can do to help
you heat the meal, please let us know.

We feel the meals should be hot when delivered to you and we will try
to find a way to do that and also comply with the health department. But
for now we must comply with the health department. We hope this
doesn’t inconvenience you too much.
