Carol invites Congress to #SaveLunch
Angels touch down on Seniors First
Thank you Florida Blue and the Orlando Fire Department for volunteering with us for #OrlandoUnitedDay in remembrance of the 49 young innocent lives taken in the Pulse tragedy on June 12, 2016.
Volunteers from Florida Blue spent part of their day with seniors enrolled in our Neighborhood Lunch Program at the L. Claudia Allen Senior Center. They served lunch and enjoyed partaking in competitive card games of Uno and Pokeno. The Orlando Fire Department brought seniors a breakfast of bagels and coffee, talked fire safety and conducted blood pressure checks.

Orlando Magic does lunch with our Meals on Wheels clients
Orlando Magic ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw delivered a little magic to our Meals on Wheels clients recently as part of a national ad campaign. The Orlando Magic teamed up with Meals on Wheels America for its, “America, Let’s Do Lunch” campaign, which invites Americans to “donate their lunch break” to deliver meals to seniors in need. Check out the Orlando Magic in action here.
Thanks Orlando Magic for helping to shine a spotlight on the program and the need for Meals on Wheels volunteers!
