Bloomington Police team up with Meals on Wheels

The Bloomington Police Department started a new partnership with Meals on Wheels in the fall of 2020. The idea for the new partnership came up when Crime Prevention Coordinator Katie Zerull was sharing scam protection information with block captains. One block captain was the Bloomington Meals on Wheels program director. This sparked an idea. Zerull offered to have the BPD officers and staff personally deliver meals, provide safety tips and answer any questions meal recipients may have. Now, BPD officers and staff look forward to delivering meals and meeting residents in their homes the first and third Fridays of the month. 

“This is a great way for us to give back and build relationships in the community. Meals are being offered. Connections are being made. And the community is reminded that BPD is here for them,” Zerull said. “With so many event cancellations as a result of COVID, it’s great to have a new way to connect with people and provide safety and crime prevention information.”

Meal recipients have provided BPD good feedback. One said: “I hope you get to deliver my route every time. This is just great!”
