Last year the Meals on Wheels food drive brought in $7,700 in cash and food items.

In an effort to practice social distancing, the Claremore area Meals on Wheels has cancelled  their annual food drive. 

But all the supplies to feed hundreds of local senior citizens and people with disabilities are still needed.  

“Our can supply is really low,” Claremore Meals on Wheels Vice President Paul Denis said. “We  are accepting donations of large cans here at our Meals on Wheels office.” 

Needed items include: green beans, pork and beans, peaches, spaghetti sauce, carrots, 

applesauce, sugar-free chocolate and vanilla cake mix and icing, and beef-only hot dogs. 

“Whatever is available,” Denis said. “I’ve been in Walmart and it is really bad down there. It  doesn’t matter what store it comes from.” 

The office, located at 715 McClellan, behind the Episcopal Church on Sioux Ave., is open and 

accepting donations Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.  

Meals on Wheels recently donated 300 lbs of canned food and cooking oil to the Rogers County 

Sheriff’s Office for their food delivery project.
