Let's Do Lunch was another great success
More than 3,000 tickets were sold for the annual fundraiser to benefit Meals on Wheels and Nutrition Programs. All 3 facets of the meal service (eat-in, carry out and delivery) were performed from North Roanoke Baptist Church which provided a great venue for the occasion. As of July 30, $80,970 was raised for Meals on Wheels and Nutrition Programs. LOA Staff enjoyed a lunch catered by Olive Garden to celebrate another successful year! We are always thankful to the community for continuing to support the LOA so generously.
More than $13,000 of the total raised at Let's Do Lunch was from the Meals on Wheels Raffle:
The LOA expresses special thanks to Jean Jadhon and WDBJ7 for helping us wrap-up our Meals on Wheels Raffle and for their continued support of Let's Do Lunch!
Volunteers are Needed for Food Box Program
Feeding America approached LOA seeking help with a new food program. The Senior Food Box program has come to our area. The food is non-perishable and includes some food commodities. 
In order to help make this program happen, The LOA is seeking volunteers to help on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. If enough people volunteer we would not need someone to work every month. Volunteers are needed for any of the following functions:
1.        Volunteers (with a pickup truck or larger SUV) to pick up boxes of food at Feeding America on Rt. 419 and deliver them to the LOA office at 4932 Frontage Road, NW.
2.        Volunteers who can be at the LOA office to give our food to clients and volunteers.
3.        Volunteers who can take boxes out on a delivery route of 10 – 12 stops.
In all of these functions, please note that each Senior Food Box weighs 30 pounds.
This program is starting now, so if you know of someone who can help, please call George Edwards at 345-0451 or email loameals@loaa.org . Our first day with Senior Food Boxes is August 21 st .
