SourcePoint announced that its third annual Boxed Lunch Fundraiser has a goal of selling more than a 1,000 boxed lunches for Meals on Wheels.
The program provides more than 200,000 meals to seniors and others in need in Delaware County, according to Delaware Mayor Carolyn Kay Riggle, who chairs the fundraising effort this year.
The event, scheduled April 4 and 5, caps off the local observance of the national March for Meals campaign to raise awareness of senior hunger and isolation.
“Too many older residents in Delaware County are struggling to stay independent and healthy,” Riggle said. “One in six deals with food insecurity.
“Help us to reach our goal of 1,000 boxed lunches sold by placing your orders by March 24. For just $10, you can buy a tasty lunch and help to provide a nutritious meal and safety check for a Meals on Wheels client. Help us to provide the support that keeps seniors in their own homes, where they want to be.”
The boxed lunches, provided by the Delaware County Community Market, includes a choice of a turkey and Swiss croissant sandwich or a vegetarian wrap, as well as pasta salad, seasonal fresh fruit, and a chocolate chip cookie.
Local businesses and organizations that place a minimum of three orders by Friday, March 24 can have lunch delivered to their office on Tuesday, April 4 and/or Wednesday, April 5.
