All proceeds of the event benefit Meals on Wheels and More, a program of the Whatcom Council on Aging, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Meals on Wheels and More supports the health and independence of local seniors by providing freshly prepared, nutritionally balanced lunches at 12 senior centers and senior residences in Whatcom and San Juan Counties, and by delivering “Meals on Wheels” to homebound seniors throughout the two counties. In 2019, the program delivered more than 108,000 meals to homebound seniors, a 75% increase over the past five years! “A successful Irish Dinner fundraiser will help ensure that all local seniors who need the Program’s services will receive them without being placed on a waiting list,” says Program Director, Julie Meyers. Meals on Wheels and More thanks event sponsors, Haggen Northwest Fresh, VibrantUSA, Dewey Griffin Subaru, and Boundary Bay Brewery.
