THE GLEN BURNIE chapter of Meals on Wheels could easily be nicknamed "Old Faithful." The volunteers there deliver two square meals a day, every weekday, to dozens of households in the area. More than 200 volunteers bring hot meals for lunch and cold, boxed meals for dinner to the elderly, the disabled and others unable to cook and shop. Some clients need the service only temporarily, said program administrator Nancy Shores. "We have some clients who are just getting out of the hospital who might only need the meals for a week," she said, and others have received the meals for years.
