In late January, Expo NM was once again graced with the energy and exuberance of our wonderful volunteers who manned our booth at the KOB TV Health Fair. Located at the Manuel Lujan, Jr. Exhibit Center, visitors received informative details about our unique meal program, volunteer opportunities such as the VIP driver initiative in which businesses and organizations sign up employees to deliver meals to our clients, and special catering department news. Our catering department has been creating and delivering delicious dishes for large corporate events as well as small birthday parties and all the proceeds go to our LIFE (Low Income Food and Enrichment) program.
Many visitors enthusiastically spun our in-house “ wheel of gifts,” which awarded them with many useful prizes such as pens, pencils, power clips, bowl scrapers, measuring spoons, and jar openers. We also held a Grand Prize drawing for the highly-celebrated cookbook “Made with Love,” which is the official Meals on Wheels Family Cookbook. Included in the book are recipes from celebrities such as Helen Mirren, Martha Stewart, First Lady Barbara Bush, Dr. Ruth, and many more. The Meals on Wheels booth was visited by over 400 attendees.
We look forward to the 2016 Health Fair and the promotional advertisement which will be airing on KOB TV. Guess who is featured in the promotional advertisement? Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque, of course!
