After the war in 1937, West went to Spain to help with the relief effort by handing out cups of milk to those who were devastated by war (West). When he was done, he went back to his home state, Indiana, and asked for heifers to send oversees to help those who did not have much to eat (West). Men volunteered their heifers to be sent overseas.

I thought Meals on Wheels of America was just a simple organization covering the surrounding counties that provided a meal a day to senior citizens who had trouble providing a meal for themselves. However, I have learned that Meals on Wheels of America was established in 1954 and is the oldest and largest national organization representing community based senior nutrition programs and that it has 5,000 member programs, in which they provide over 1 million meals to seniors every day, which are served at senior centers as well as delivering meals directly to the homes of seniors whose mobility is limited.
