Larry Lunchbox is back, and he’s bringing friends! February 11 – 15, 2013 Horizons will offer the community a taste of our great services through the third annual Horizons Meals On Wheels Lunchbox fundraiser. Orders are now being taken. Visit www.horizonsfamily.org for all the details.

The third year’s a charm as Horizons rolls out an all new menu, welcomes new partnerships, and offers fun bonus buys. Choose from a variety of mouthwatering lunch options at only $10 each, with $5 toward your meal and the other $5 to feed a homebound senior. On the menu is Larry’s Favorite (tender shaved beef and zesty coleslaw), The Ranch Hand (chicken salad with southwestern giddy-up), or the Blue Zones Pit Stop (veggie favorites on a whole wheat bagel thin for heart-healthy refueling). The proceeds from this yummy yearly event help Horizons Meals On Wheels feed Eastern Iowa’s homebound residents.

Horizons is honored to join forces with the Cedar Rapids Blue Zones initiative in creating a heart-smart choice to support our city’s quest to become a certified Blue Zones Community ™. Purchase of the Blue Zones Pit Stop comes with a chance to win a Bristol Motor Speedway Package which includes two tickets to the March Nationwide and two tickets to the Sprint Cup on March 16 and 17.

A decadent dessert addition courtesy of Zins restaurant offers a sweet bonus to this year’s event. No one can resist the Velvet Elvis, a rich red-velvet cupcake under ribbons of creamy frosting. Top off your lunch with this perfect treat for only $2.

Also new to this year’s event is the option to add the Made With Love cookbook to any order. Over 100 celebrities united to create a montage of family favorites, hardbound by the Meals On Wheels Association of America in their effort to end senior hunger. Famous contributors include Mario Batali, former First Lady Barbara Bush, Martha Stewart, and Cedar Rapids’ own Kurt Warner. The proceeds from cookbook sales stay within Horizons Meals On Wheels program.

Online ordering via a new, user-friendly shopping cart system is available at www.horizonsfamily.org. Supporters can find more information or download Order Forms on the website as well. Show some love during Valentine’s week, order gourmet lunches and provide meals to homebound seniors at the same time!
