Funds raised from this event will support our Meals on Wheels program that has grown to meet the increase demands of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  •  Our traditional Meals on Wheels program has grown by 50%.
  • At the same time, we are delivering additional meals and food for Meals on Wheels recipients to build a reserve of food.
  •  We are delivering to high risk homeless sheltered by Olmsted County and persons quarantined awaiting COVID-19 test results from Mayo Clinic.
  •  We are providing support to Channel One/Rochester Public Schools food box distributions at drop sites and other locations.
  • We are distributing donations from local groceries to residents in their neighborhoods and living centers.

Because we know that they are being seriously impacted by the COVID-19 mitigation strategies, our new, Food for Friends game will also allow you to support the local restaurants who were ready to support Meals on Wheels.
