Big Wheels Deliver Meals
A Senior Health Awareness and ‘Meals on Wheels’ Benefit Program
Big Wheels Deliver Meals is an annual day of service that raises awareness about the nutritional health and welfare of home-bound seniors in our community.
Every year, Elder Care Services’ Meals on Wheels (MOW) program delivers over 100,000 hot, nutritious meals to Tallahassee seniors. Over half of these meals are personally delivered to over 500 frail, homebound seniors and provide much more than nutrition. In many cases, Meals on Wheels volunteers are the only face homebound seniors may see all day. Imagine their excitement when the delivery is made by local celebrities.
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.
