Meals on wheels gets a boost with new car

By Cassandra Tanti - July 6, 2020

A refrigerated Renault Kangoo was recently acquired by the Monaco City Council thanks to the generosity of the Rotary Club.

The 100% electric vehicle was integrated into the municipal fleet as of 31st March to ensure the delivery of meals at home offered by the Service for Seniors and Social Action. Due to the health crisis and the subsequent confinement, this service had been extended to all residents of the Principality aged over 70 or in fragile health. The increased demand required a rapid strengthening of the means of delivery.

This vehicle made it possible to deliver an average of 60 extra meals per day, adding to the 250 meals required during lockdown.

On 8th June, Mayor Georges Marsan welcomed Ilhami Aygun, President of the Rotary Club (2019-2020), Jean Marie Lecomte, president-elect (2020-2021) and Christian Palmaro, past-president, for a photo shoot around the new vehicle in front of the town hall gates. The official handover of the keys took place during the Rotary Club transfer of power ceremony, on Tuesday 30th June at the Méridien Beach Plaza in the presence of the Mayor.
