Big Wheels is an outreach event that benefits both the seniors that we deliver food to and our organization. Once a year in October, Coon Rapids-Blaine Meals on Wheels invites all the big wheels from our cities of Coon Rapids and Blaine and all the county officials to join our volunteer drivers in delivering hot meals to seniors. Many officials become volunteer drivers.
In the past years we have had county board members, city police and fire, city council members and the county attorney volunteer. In election years we do not invite Big Wheels as many are up for reelection and this is a conflict.
