Join us at Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s first ever 5K & Fun Run Music Fest on Saturday, February 3, 2018. The Meals On Wheels High School Leadership Board (HSLB) is hosting this event to raise awareness of senior hunger in Tampa and to collect funds to be able to purchase an emergency safety kit, which will include a radio and flashlight, for all 800 senior and homebound neighbors served each day. The event this year was developed in direct response to Hurricane Irma and its effects on our seniors and homebound neighbors, as many did not have power for days.
