March for Meals St. Patrick’s 5K Run/Walk
March for Meals St. Patrick’s 5K Run/Walk is a fun run event to create awareness of senior hunger and to raise money for the Meals on Wheels program in Osceola County through the Osceola Council on Aging. It is a fun run with a clock, so you can catch your time at the finish line!

We will award the top 10 male and 10 female overall finishers plus the top male and female finisher 65+. This year’s event will be a few days before St. Patrick’s Day. Since we are so close to St. Patrick’s Day, we are asking all participants to have fun with the color “green” by wearing your “lucky” green to celebrate ending Senior Hunger! We are asking you to put together a team and participate in our “Team Challenge” category and win the “MOST SPIRITED TEAM” and/or “LARGEST TEAM” in 2022

Put your team together today and show your spirit and help us fight senior hunger by supporting the Meals on Wheels program in Osceola County. Thank you for signing up and we look forward to seeing you there!

Want to be a Meals on Wheels volunteer?
We have been blessed with the most AWESOME, CARING, COMPASSIONATE and DEDICATED group of Volunteers! These angels have been there with us during our hardest times (COVID Pandemic). Day after day, some of them are doing more than a route, more than one day a week! WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO EACH ONE OF THEM!
Because of COVID, the number of people we serve has doubled, making the routes longer! We have had to split routes to make it more manageable for volunteers and to better control meal temperatures. This is the reason why we need more volunteers! We are in need of volunteers especially in Poinciana, Poinciana Blvd., Pleasant Hill Road, Good Samaritan, Campbell City, Holopaw, Old Canoe Creek Road, BVL area, 192 going toward Celebration, among others! 

If you are interested or would like to know more about being a hero to our Seniors in need, please call Wilda at 407-847-2144.
