The coming snow storm could prevent people from leaving their homes, which means some people might not get their usual deliveries.

Meals on Wheels is trying to get extra food out in case drivers can't deliver Monday. If Asheville City Schools close, Meals on Wheels won't deliver. So, the service is sending out pantry items and frozen meals along with its traditional hot meals.

They want to remind people to check in on their elderly neighbors and family members.

"I would definitely want our community, if you have seniors, especially homebound seniors, in your neighborhood, please check in on them. Make sure they're OK. Make sure they do have enough to eat. Make sure their heat is working. That would be very incredibly helpful for us," Meals on Wheels director of development Debbie Sprouse said.

Meals on Wheels in Buncombe County said its pantry is running low and it would appreciate any help with food or monetary donations.
