Enjoy an Epicurean Esprit feast to help Meals on Wheels

The 25th anniversary of the Epicurean Esprit offers a taste of Yolo County’s finest wine and cuisine while supporting the county’s Meals On Wheels program.

This year’s event will run from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 15, at the home of Bill and Julie Payne, 303 W. Gibson Road in Woodland. Featuring a variety of cuisine from more than 30 area restaurants, caterers, wineries and beverage distributors, the Epicurean Esprit offers generous samplings from pasta to pie, cabernet to coffee, in a garden party atmosphere.

The Lucky Draw Raffle returns, offering an eclectic collection of items donated by area businesses and individuals.

Friends of Meals on Wheels supports the Elderly Nutrition Program of Yolo County, a senior meal program balancing nutrition with socialization for elderly citizens. Last year, nearly 81,000 nourishing meals were served to 1,200 seniors in Davis, Woodland, Winters, West Sacramento, Esparto and Knights Landing.

Some folks enjoyed their healthy lunch at the local senior center, while the frail homebound elderly received their meal at home, delivered by concerned, committed volunteers.

Jill Schreiner, president of Friends of Meals on Wheels, hopes the Esprit will raise more than $50,000 this year. The Elderly Nutrition Program is faced with rising expenses because of an increase in food and fuel costs and cutbacks in funding from government agencies.

“We need your support more than ever so the Elderly Nutrition Program does not have to cut back services to seniors,” Schreiner said. “Please come out and join Friends of Meals On Wheels for a fun evening on May 15 while supporting the seniors of our county.”

Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased online at http://esprit.eventbrite.com or at Strelitzia Flower Company in both Davis and Woodland, and First Northern Bank, National Real Estate, Terry’s Hallmark and Gifted Penguin in Woodland.
