Not only is this a sensational evening of wine and entertainment, but your support helps a most worthy cause. Mobile Meals home-delivered meal program is designed to enable the elderly, ill, disabled, homebound, the convalescing and all those who need assistance with diet and meal preparation to remain in their own homes and retain the dignity and independence they treasure. This program postpones and often eliminates the need for more extensive and expensive care arrangements. Meals are assembled in Mobile Meals' kitchen at Mercy Health Center. More than 600 clients are served daily and more than 500,000 meals are delivered annually.
