The Lake County Council on Aging Meals on Wheels program provides daily nutritious meals, companionship and critical safety checks to Lake County's homebound seniors to combat hunger and isolation. Blizzard bags provide 2-3 days of emergency food for use when MOW is unable to deliver due to winter weather or other emergency.

The Council on Aging is teaming up with Subaru dealers and the Lake County Senior Services Coalition to collect READY-TO-EAT, non-perishable food items for emergency "Blizzard Bags".

Shelf-stable, ready-to-eat food items will be distributed to home delivered meal seniors who are unable to stock their own emergency food pantry.
