The Blizzard Box Blitz is an annual event where Meals on Wheels volunteers help package shelf-stable meals in to Blizzard Boxes. What exactly is a Blizzard Box? It’s a meal that’s delivered to Meals on Wheels clients that can be stored away and used when the weather turns ugly and Meals on Wheels volunteers can’t make it out on the road to deliver meals.
This year, volunteers will pack more than 10,000 meals to help meal recipients get through the Minnesota winter. With a day’s work, our volunteers will help ensure that our recipients will have something to eat when the weather prevents regular meal delivery.
