FedEx Delivers Meals to Homebound Seniors

September 24, 2009

FedEx Feeds volunteers around the country are stepping up to feed the hungry during National Hunger Action Month. FedEx IT and FedEx Solutions team members in Memphis are doing their part by making weekly meal deliveries to homebound seniors by volunteering for MIFA (Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association).

MIFA Meals delivers over 2,400 hot nutritious lunches to seniors’ homes and congregate sites each weekday. Not only does each meal provide the senior with at least 1/3 of the U.S. daily dietary requirement, but it also delivers daily contact and access to the outside world. MIFA Meals and other Meals on Wheels programs often mean the difference between a senior being able to continue living in their home or being forced to move to an assisted living facility. Check out this video to see how these FedEx volunteers are making a difference.
