NWAnews.com :: Northwest Arkansas' News Source: "When I come in in the morning, my biggest nightmare since I've been here has been Meals on Wheels,' Sherri Napier, Senior Center director, said.

Napier said Monday that the center runs nine daily routes. Volunteer drivers cover seven of the routes, which range from 10 to 37 meals each to be delivered. Two trucks, driven by employees, deliver about 90 meals a day.

'You've got to get in first thing in the morning and make sure all your volunteers are going to show up, and if they don't, you have to plan and plan and plan because the meals are going to start going out,' Napier said. 'You can't leave hungry people out there.'"
