Our most recent project is due to a $20,000 grant that the SRC was awarded from the State of WI as a revitalization project. This is to incorporate a business acumen idea for sustainability of our nutrition program for additional income, by using a Traveling Kitchen, a real Meals on Wheels! We have purchased a WI approved Food Trailer & BBQ, which will be used to do outreach meal events in Sawyer County communities that do not have close access to a senior meal site and are too far for Meals on Wheels delivery. It can also be used in emergency situations such as power outages or in the case of natural disaster. The “Timber Team” will also be out at our local festivals to raise awareness and funds for the programs we provide to older adults in Sawyer County. Part of this plan is to incorporate locally grown meat and produce as much as possible, into our homemade meals and Meals on Wheels deliveries throughout Sawyer County, promoting “Farm to Table” and our local growers.
The Food Trailer & Grill is in the process of being cleaned, sandblasted and painted! Watch for updates on the progress. Looking forward to seeing you on the road.
The Grill is done and the Trailer is just waiting for logos!
