Big Wheels Deliver Meals

A Senior Health Awareness and ‘Meals on Wheels’ Benefit Program

Big Wheels Deliver Meals is an annual program that raises awareness about the nutritional health and welfare of home-bound seniors in our community through direct participation in a powerful day of service.

Every year, Elder Care Services’ Meals on Wheels (MOW) program delivers over 160,000 hot, nutritious meals to Tallahassee seniors. However, MOW is more than just a meal for the over 600 local seniors served. In many cases, Meals on Wheels volunteers are the only face those seniors may see all day. Imagine their excitement when the delivery is made by local dignitaries.

Last year's Big Wheels program brought together more than 50 local and state representatives, business and community leaders who volunteered their time to deliver the most important of all basic needs, a hot nutritious meal, along with a safety check and a friendly, welcomed visit. Throughout the year, over 13,000 volunteer hours support this critical service.
