CHICO, Calif. - Chico Mayor Randall Stone joined the Meals on Wheels crew to provide a vital service for seniors.

The event was part of a month-long celebration of Meals on Wheels, which provides a service for seniors so they can stay healthy and independent.

Meals on Wheels of Chico is marking its 48th year and this year, the non-profit agency will deliver nearly 40,000 meals.

The Chico program serves Chico and Durham and since the Camp Fire, Magalia.

"We provide 13 types of meals based on dietary needs," said Eric Moxon, Chico board president for Meals on Wheels. "We deliver 110 meals a day. Before the Camp Fire, we were delivering about 80-85. Our need has tremendously increased." 

Stone joined the crews to help pass out meals. 

"When seniors can live independently in their own homes and reduce the traffic of people who can't get meals, it's a tremendous opportunity for our community," Stone said.

More heat and sunshine for our area today, and thankfully weaker wind for our dry region. The highs will get hotter, but the wind will also get stronger late in the forecast.
