VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Some special volunteers were behind the scenes of Meals on Wheels Monday.

That's with Cops in the Kitchen.

It's part of March for Meals month.

It encourages people to volunteer and learn more about Meals on Wheels.

The organization provides meals to those who can't provide meals for themselves.

Four years ago, Meals on Wheels served 8,000 meals annually.

Now it serves 40,500.

News 10 caught up with one of the cops in the kitchen about getting to help out during Champion's Week.

West Terre Haute Police Chief William Bark explains, "It went pretty smooth. Sheriff Plasse has experience in this, but Chief Keen and I may have struggled a little bit. I got some mashed potatoes on my shoes but other than that I think we did okay."

Organizers say Meals on Wheels recently put $10,000 dollars worth of equipment in the kitchen but there's still a big need for a walk-in fridge and freezer.
