TULSA, Okla. — The winter weather is putting a freeze on an essential service in Tulsa. The Meals on Wheels of Tulsa are kicking it into overdrive to deliver food to thousands across the metro.

Friday was a busy day at the Meals on Wheels kitchen as the Saint Bernard Brigade helped the organization deliver more than 1,500 meals to seniors across Tulsa.

The Saint Bernard Brigade is a group of expert drivers, initially forming to help the public during the 2007 ice storm. Now, the group faces a similar emergency.

2 Works for You spoke to two of them on Friday who said they could not be happier serving their community.

“Having delivered Meals on Wheels for three years now, I can see the need,” Diane Austin said.

Meals on Wheels is calling this storm an emergency event, and they are seeking additional volunteers to help deliver food. If you would like to volunteer, call 918-921-3563 or click here.
