LEHI -- "I know that face," said Beverlee Peterson, smiling as she opened her front door to see Rep. Jim Matheson along with her delivery from Meals on Wheels at her home in Lehi on Tuesday.

Matheson had joined volunteer Julie Smith as she made her deliveries to a number of homebound seniors in Lehi, getting a firsthand look at the much-needed service.

It was the congressman's first time meeting with Meals on Wheels, and by the end of the hour-long trip he was impressed with the hard work of all those involved.

"The community volunteers are such an integral part of how the whole thing works and that speaks so highly of this entire community," Matheson said.
