Meals On Wheels of Tampa will be hosting their inaugural Meals On Wheels 5K & Fun Run Music Fest on Saturday, February 3rd, along the Tampa Riverwalk.

The Meals On Wheels High School Leadership Board (HSLB) is presenting 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 over 800 senior and homebound neighbors served each day. The event 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.
