Big Wheels Fundraiser

The deadline for ordering Big Wheels boxed lunches has passed but you can still contribute to Meals on Wheels by hitting the Donate button. Thanks for your support!

What is Big Wheels?

For nearly two decades, “Big Wheels” has served as the primary fundraiser for Meals on Wheels of Columbia.  Gourmet box lunches, prepared by Hospitality Management students of the University of Missouri, are sold for $10 with $5 going toward Meals on Wheels of Columbia.  The annual event raises approximately $20,000, with funds going toward the operation of the agency.

In 2014, Meals on Wheels volunteers will sell box lunches for delivery April 21-25.  Individuals interested in purchasing a box lunch can complete an order form and submit it to the Meals on Wheels of Columbia office, by calling in an order to 573-886-7554, faxing an order to 573-814-6363, or by ordering online.  A three box lunch minimum is required for each delivery order, while smaller or out-of-town orders may be picked up in Eckles Hall on the Missouri Campus.  (For a map, please click here and search for Eckles in the drop down menu at the top of the page.) Five dollars from each lunch ordered is tax-deductible.

Board members and volunteers of Meals on Wheels will deliver the lunches to your home or office by Noon of the day you request.

Since 1993, Meals on Wheels has sold nearly 3,000 box lunches for Big Wheels.  The money raised through the five-day event helps pay for food for clients, salaries, volunteer supplies, postage and more.  When you buy a lunch from Meals on Wheels, it goes toward a great cause and keeps meals getting delivered to people who need them.

Meals on Wheels of Columbia is 100 percent locally funded by the city of Columbia, client fees and private donations.
