OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Cassondra June started Real Meals three years ago. She takes nominations, chooses deserving seniors and then cooks and delivers them two meals a week. She currently serves 51 seniors.

"Elderly people have taken care of others, and they have done something for somebody and I think they deserve this meal," she said.

She works another job and runs Real Meals on donations and volunteers.

"People want to pay to have this service. I don't charge for this service. It's a free service," said Cassondra June.

Volunteers help her make the deliveries.

One recipient, Beverly Frazier, said the food is delicious and described Cassondra June as a missionary and an angel.

"She's kind-hearted and true. She's a Christian. It's a blessing, we are receiving a blessing," said Frazier.

Cassondra June has been branching out too. She recently served kids with O.NE Finest Dance Team.

Bread for the Journey's Omaha chapter recently presented Cassondra June with a grant for her work.
