Celebrating 50 Years at SAGE

There’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal, and the volunteers at SAGE know all about that. The Meals on Wheels program at SAGE—the Summit area Association for Gerontological Endeavor—is commemorating its 50th year of delivering hot meals to area residents who are frail, homebound or disabled.

Meals delivered by SAGE are planned by a registered dietitian and are low in fat and sodium. The organization also caters to special diets, offering diabetic, pureed and kidney-friendly meals. If you still like to slip on an apron and make your own meals, SAGE volunteers will help you buy all the ingredients.

Former Major League Baseball player and YES Network analyst Al Leiter and his family recently joined volunteers to deliver meals in the area and met some fans along the way. Pictured during their delivery route are the Leiters: Lori, Jack and Al.
