This Morning: Meals on Wheels Fundraiser Preview

(WLNS) — The Meals on Wheels program, offered through the Tri-County Office on Aging, has been a helping hand to area seniors since the 70’s and now, they need your help.

Nutrition Director Carl Buonodono says the program is always in need of volunteers, but right now the need is greater than usual.

The number of people being under-served by the program has tripled within the passed year, and funding both local and federal is only meeting about 3/4 of the need, according to Buonodono.

On Thursday, January 27th local Bob Evan’s Restaurants are teaming up with The Tri-County Office on Aging for an all-day fundraiser.

Anyone who dines at any of the three local Bob Evan’s locations, and presents a Meals on Wheels fundraising flyer at the end of their meal will have 15% of their meal total donated to TCOA.

Participating restaurants include:

Bob Evans, 13101 S. US 27, Dewitt

Bob Evans, 625 Commercial Dr, Lansing

Bob Evans, 900 American Rd, Lansing

Flyers are available at some neighboring businesses and here.
