Let’s Give Lunch

Let’s Give Lunch

June 22-26

For 30 years, LOA has conducted our annual fundraiser, “Let’s Do Lunch,” to benefit Meals on Wheels. In a typical year, we help more than 8oo seniors live healthier and safer in their own homes because our amazing volunteers provide friendly visits, well-being checks, and more than 124,000 meals.

This event allows us to provide boxed lunches for sale to area businesses and individuals for a $15 donation. That $15 then provides three meals for seniors in need. While this powerful equation has not changed — it seems that virtually everything else in these challenging times has.

We can’t “do lunch” with friends and family like we used to.  And the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and supporters is far too precious to jeopardize in any way — especially when our vulnerable and elderly patrons need our help and protection now more than ever.

Even during this historic pandemic, LOA is committed to continuing to provide all our critical services. We hold our staff and volunteers in such high esteem, realizing their tireless efforts. Many are doing “double duty,” willingly ready to unload deliveries, deliver emergency bag meals, Meals on Wheels and food boxes, as well as doing “pickups” wherever we can find supplies.

LOA was there before COVID-19, we are there fighting on the front lines now, and we will still be there once life returns to “normal.” But we need your help.

Let’s Do Lunch has truly never been about the meals we sell — it has always been in the spirit of giving. Many people have told us they buy the lunches even if they may not be in the office that day or already have a lunch meeting. For you, it’s about the meals it allows us to give to those who need them – not the ones you receive.

This year we are asking you a simple question. Will you help us and…Let’s GIVE Lunch?

Remember, a $15 donation buys three wholesome, healthy meals for those in need. But NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL – even $5. And if you can give more? Then we can give more back. This year, we may not fill your belly, but we can fill your soul as you share the blessings you have been given with others.

This virtual event will allow us to maintain social distancing and extend our time together beyond a single day. We are extending the event to a week with virtual lunch events each day and multiple ways to give. Visit our Facebook page the week of June 22 and join us online as we share a meal and also our thanks.
