Winter weather has forced Meals on Wheels to shutdown deliveries to needy residents Monday.
A spokesperson with the Tulsa non-profit told KTUL that the organization closes when Tulsa Public Schools are out for the day. Officials with the school district made the announcement Sunday afternoon.
Meals on Wheels has an estimated 250 volunteers that deliver food to those in need every day. But slick roads make those deliveries difficult and forces the deliveries to halt.
Volunteers will spend the day making calls to recipients to check on their welfare. "Blizzard Boxes" also have already been delivered to recipients in advance of the closure.
Area residents are urged to check on their elderly family members and neighbors during the winter season. Those wanting more information on Meals on Wheels can contact (918) 627-4103.
