This annual event is a major fundraiser for OPC’s Meals on Wheels program, which has provided critical support to area seniors throughout this unprecedented health crisis. This essential service supplies daily hot, nutritious meals and wellness checks to area seniors who are unable to shop for or prepare meals on their own, and regardless of income level.

The OPC has continued preparing and delivering meals uninterrupted throughout the COVID-19 quarantine and Stay at Home orders. Over the course of the last four months, deliveries of meals to homebound seniors have risen by 30 to sometimes 50 meals per day and the OPC has successfully met this increased demand, and will continue to do so.

The OPC will proceed this year with an event-less fundraiser where people are invited to enjoy to make a donation to Meals on Wheels in any amount.
