DENVER — A power outage this morning stopped the Meals on Wheels program by Volunteers of America from delivering hot meals.
A transformer in the neighborhood caught fire and took out power for much of the morning, said Dale Elliot.
Power was back on around 10:15 a.m. but Elliot said they can’t serve meals at their dining centers or make hot meal deliveries.
The organization is telling people to rely on their emergency blizzard boxes they sent out last month.
Elliot said that meal service will continue on Monday but frozen meal delivery will continue as usual.
Meals on Wheels serves seven counties in the metro area. They deliver about 700 meals a day.
