Event description
Taste the giving season by attending Meals of Joy's first-ever, drive-thru meal event and be introduced to a unique senior meal program.

About this Event

Since Meals of Joy was founded in 2009, its undertaking was clear: bring fresh, delicious meals to seniors who are unable to prepare food for themselves due to medical issues or financial need. And since then, our organization has grown to deliver to several hundred clients per week. And now, more than ever, Meals of Joy is bringing not just good food but hope to each senior client we serve. We are so grateful to the community and, of course, our wonderful volunteers who make our meal delivery possible!

Currently, nearly 5.3 million seniors currently face hunger in our nation. It’s estimated that by 2050, nearly 50 million seniors will be food insecure. At Meals of Joy, we’re on a mission to bring a ready-to-eat meal to every senior in need.

On Saturday, November 14 Meals of Joy invites the community to share in what we offer. Those age 55+ or their selected caregivers can pickup a full size meal at no cost by attending our first-ever Taste for Joy event. It’s our way of showing what makes our meals different, but also share our gratitude as we begin the 2020 holiday season.

Space is limited and reservations are required in advance. *Meals reservations will be limited to 1 per register.

How to ensure your tasty meal!

1. Select Your Ticket

Select your ticket according to the designated drive-thru window that you are able to attend.

Guests are asked to arrive at the beginning of the pick-up window to ensure enough time to retrieve their meal.

*To help with the flow of traffic and safety of our guests, staff, volunteers and sponsors, we are limiting 35 per time slot. This is a first come, first serve event, and once all the tickets are sold, the time slot will be filled and we won’t be able to accommodate any more guest.

2. Complete Your Ticket Information

Please complete the registration form during the checkout process. You will be asked to provide information that will help verify that you are a senior 55+ or their designated caregiver. This helps us ensure guests who are attending this free event qualify for the Meals of Joy program.

3. Select Your Meal Option

Discover what makes our meals different! You’ll have the chance to taste a fresh-from-the kitchen meal like Mom used to make--and you’ll see why seniors rave about our food!

Choose from two delicious entrees: hand-carved ham or hearty ravioli.

Both meals will be served with a tasty vegetable side dish and warm bread to enjoy at home. And don’t forget, this portion size and entree are the same that are offered to our seniors every day. Freshly made, and delivered ready-to-eat. No prep work needed! At Taste for Joy, meals will be prepared for grab-and-go style drive-through pick up, in order to maintain safe social distancing.

Please note: This is a drive-through event and social distancing measures will be in place. Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks and guests will be asked to wear masks as well for the safety and best interest of our senior population.

4. Save or Print Your Digital Ticket

Once you register, you will be sent an email with your digital ticket, please save or print this ticket as you will need it for entering the event.

5. Keep a Lookout for More Information
