Meals on Wheels Kicks Off Big Wheels Fundraiser
COLUMBIA - For years Big Wheels has served as the primary fundraiser for Columbia's Meals on Wheels program which kicked off Monday.
For the rest of the week, gourmet lunches prepared by hospitality management students of MU are preparing boxed lunches for delivery upon request. Each meal costs $10 and $5 of that portion will be donated to Meals on Wheels and is also tax deductible.
The money raised from the week-long event helps pay for food for clients, salaries, volunteer supplies, and postage.
The meals requested will arrive at each destination by noon every day this week.
