The Holly Springs Rotary Club participates in the Meals on Wheels program of Wake County!
Every month on the 1st, 3rd and 5th (if there is one) Tuesday we pick up lunches at the Pine Acres Community Center in Fuquay-Varina, and deliver them to homes in Holly Springs area. Meal pick up is at 11:00am and the route normally takes less than an hour. This is a great opportunity to truly give back to the local community in tangible way. We often take for granted the food on our table, but there are people here in our community that have nothing in on their table. Providing food for those that need it most really gives meaning to “Give us this day our daily bread”.
Since 1974 Meals on Wheels has been providing nutritious meals to the homebound elderly and persons with disabilities in Wake County in an effort to improve health, reduce isolation, and prevent unnecessary institutionalization. Serving close to 1,300 meals daily to homes and nutrition centers, Meals on Wheels provides the frailest of our community’s citizens with a voice to achieve healthful independence.
