Local Seniors Get Curbside Meal Service

Despite below zero temperatures on Thursday, a team of volunteers from the Coon Rapids Rotary Club braved the cold to help deliver an early Valentine's Day meal to senior citizens.

Between 11 a.m. and noon, cars lined-up in for curbside service in front of the Coon Rapids Civic Center as volunteers handed out 240 prepared meals which included lasagna, garlic bread and a sweet treat. The meals were served by a group of hearty Minnesotans.

"Despite being kind of a cold day I think people are just real happy today and just glad to be out," said volunteer and Coon Rapids City Councilmember Pat Carlson.

Coon Rapids Rotary Club member Joe McKenzie added his thoughts on the lucky seniors who got a hot meal, "They're just so happy that we're out here today, and providing this service even though we're going through a lot at this time. But I think that it's important that we do this safely, but still deliver on our service for our seniors and elders in our community."

The Valentine Day meal was catered by Lisa’s Catering of Anoka.  In addition to the food, there was a goodie bag that included a toothbrush and a booklet of puzzles and games.  This Valentine formula is: cold weather plus a hot meal equals warm hearts.
