RAMA Delivers Meals-On-Wheels

RAMA drives Meals-On-Wheels (MOW) every third Tuesday of every month, all year long.  It is a very SHORT route, from arrival at FeedMore on Rhoadmiller St. at about 10:30 am, the delivery is usually finished around noon.  It's fun to have a "co-pilot" and plan to go out for lunch afterwards, but it can definitely be driven alone.


2017 2018 dates are: Sept. 19, Oct. 17, Nov. 21, Dec. 19, Jan. 16, Feb. 20, Mar. 20, Apr. 17, May 15, Jun.19, Jul. 17, and Aug. 21.
