We’d like to invite you to join Meals on Onewheels Orange County 🍊(MOOW OC) in the Main Street USA Independence Day Parade in Corona, CA on Tuesday, July 4, 2023! 🇺🇸💨 As a part of our unique program, you'll not only have an amazing time but also contribute to supporting individuals experiencing homelessness & at high risk for drug overdoses.
Meals on Onewheels provides street-based distribution of nutritious meals to the homeless population through community-driven events featuring Onewheels & other PEVs.
