Grocery Packing at Cub

We are packing groceries for Cub customers at the Quarry on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving between 10 am-6 pm.  We are looking for volunteers to help us during that time. We will need about 10-12 people at any given time.  Please let us know ahead of time if you will be there. We are hoping to receive generous donations for our volunteer efforts.  If you cannot help pack please be sure to stop by and tell the manager how much you appreciate Quarry Cub support to our program.  In December, we will be looking for volunteers to help pack groceries again at the Quarry’s Cub on Saturday, December 22nd from 10 am-6 pm. Please consider helping out if only for a couple of hours.


November Letters
Watch your mailbox for our annual appeal letter being mailed out at the end of November.  We send out only one appeal letter per year and the return address will be from 1510 33rd Avenue NE.  A letter from any other address is not from this neighborhood Meals on Wheels Program.  We hope you will consider a 100%  tax deductible annual donation every year to our program.


The first Thursday monthly meals fundraisers at White Castle are postponed until the restaurant moves into their brand new building located at 608 Central Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN 55414 in November or December 2018.  Please watch for continuing updates.


Here’s a few of our past programs…

INDEED BREWERY FUNDRAISER

Thanks for joining us at Indeed Brewing Company! We really appreciate your support.

Indeed Brewery donated all of the net proceeds to Eastside Meals on Wheels as part of its #IndeedWeCan program.


We’d like to thank all our volunteers for their help this year.

Some have volunteered with our program for more than 40 years! Some help by delivering meals, participating with fundraising activities, helping in the kitchen, and being a board or committee member. They are all a part of the wheel that keeps our organization moving and thriving and successful.
