Produce on Wheels Rolls Out to 800+ Homebound Neighbors This Saturday
On Saturday July 21st, Meals On Wheels of Tampa will host their Produce on Wheels (POW!) program. Volunteers, community businesses and community members will deliver produce bags to over 800 recipients. The POW! program is in partnership with Feeding Tampa Bay, Nu Vista Foods Group and Publix.
Produce will be delivered to MOW recipients’ homes all over Tampa. In addition to delivering a well-balanced hot meal everyday, MOW delivers fresh produce once a month as another way to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Diets with higher fruit and vegetable intake have been found to reduce risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, lower risk of eye and digestive problems and reduce the risk of some types of cancer.
This month’s produce bag will contain summer friendly fruits and vegetables like apples, bananas, tangerines, grapes, carrots and sweet potatoes.
POW! is delivered by caring and friendly volunteers. The Saturday POW! delivery is a great activity for families and new volunteers interested in testing out a route. If you, your organization, or anyone you know is interested in giving back to the community by donating a couple hours of your time, Meals On Wheels could use your help.
Please contact Shana Taylor-Page for more information and ways to get involved in changing your neighbors lives.
