This event’s purpose is to educate our communities about and to raise funds for our “Meals-on-Wheels” program. Over the last several years we have seen significant growth in our program, indicating that the need is increasing. This past fiscal year ending September, we served 80,479 “Meals-on-Wheels”. During October 2019- July 2020 we have delivered over 68,002 meals county-wide. Even with Covid 19 we have severed 15,646 Senior Center meals. 43% of Roscommon County residents are over the age of 60. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, those over the age of 65 are expected to double during the next three decades. The last baby boomer will turn 65 in the year 2030. Roscommon County has twice as many “seniors” as school-aged children. While we receive grant funds and millage monies, the need surpasses the funds. We also rely on donations and fundraisers to supplement our “Meals-on-Wheels” program.
