The Meals on Wheels Gala took place to support senior citizens

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (CBS, KYMA/KECY) – The annual Meals on Wheels Gala took place in San Francisco on Sunday.

The event raises funds to support elderly people in need throughout the city and provide them with a hot meal.

“It’s important for us to step forward and help them fight that food insecurity … to be part of that safety blanket for them,” said Rosemary Wong, board chair of Meals on Wheels.

The gala raises 1/3 of the nonprofit’s budget and provides nearly $700,000 in meals to seniors each year. Nearly 600 guests attended the event at the Fort Mason Center.

80 restaurants represented the best of Northern California cuisine, and more than 70 top wineries from Napa and Sonoma Counties.

“It’s exciting to come out here and see all the people and do something good for the community,” said Colton Hays, a chef.

Of course, the gala ended with a series of delicious desserts.
