Sioux City Meals on Wheels recipients were surprised to see Humvees pull into their driveways to bring their noon meals. Members of National Guard D Company 323 BSB put their boots to the snowpacked ground, and delivered all 17 routes (over 160 meals) to homebound seniors on 1/5/2016. The guard members issued a challenge to other businesses, organizations, and groups to meet the urgent need for Meals on Wheels drivers in both Sioux City and Council Bluffs.
