We Need Your Help

Our Immediate Needs

Many of VISTE’s Hot Meal clients comprise the most frail of the population we serve. Hot Meal clients do not have the means to cook for themselves for various reasons, mostly due to declining health. Sometimes, the volunteer who is delivering the meal may be the only person the Hot Meal client sees each week! This volunteer becomes the eyes and ears for those who may not have anyone else to depend on. Over 400 Hot Meals are delivered two times each week to clients who are unable to prepare food for themselves.
