Based in Niwot, Colorado, Atlantic Publishers Group distributes a number of widely read magazines, such as Forbes and Newsweek. Atlantic Publishers Group (APG) also gives back to its Colorado community by contributing to numerous organizations, including Meals on Wheels.
Meals on Wheels aims to meet the needs of the growing group of seniors who struggle with hunger. To reach this population, the organization relies on volunteers to deliver nutritious meals. Participants in the America, Let’s Do Lunch program donate their lunch break to distribute meals to homebound seniors and check in on them. Volunteers are assigned a short route where they visit several local seniors in their homes before dropping off the delivery packaging items and returning to work.
Meals on Wheels has a vetting process to ensure the safety of its clients, with some chapters requiring background checks before volunteers can distribute meals without supervision. The organization also allows individuals to volunteer outside of lunch time, whether preparing meals or doing other tasks at local sites.
