Hot Diggity Dog! The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is traveling across America and is making a stop from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, July 29 at Resurrection Lutheran Church, St. Joseph. The stop coincides with Catholic Charities Senior Dining Frozen Meal Distribution from 10:30 to 11:30 am, also at Resurrection Lutheran Church. Fans of all ages (especially seniors 60 and older!) of the 27-foot head-turner can take pictures of and with the Wienermobile, which is now 85 years old, peak inside the American icon and receive their very own Hotdogger name and Wiener Whistle.
There is no cost to attend events where the Wienermobile is stationed. Catholic Charities Senior Dining regularly hosts monthly frozen meal pop-up locations for seniors 60 and older across Central Minnesota, including at Resurrection Lutheran Church.
There is no cost for seniors to receive these frozen meals; however, Catholic Charities Senior Dining will accept donations from senior clients who receive frozen meals. Catholic Charities Senior Dining provides healthy and nutritious frozen meals that meet one-third of the recommended daily allowance for seniors. The meals are packaged in oven-safe containers that are easy to heat and eat in both conventional and microwave ovens, and are available in quantities of 10 and up to 30 per calendar month.
Clients must be 60 years of age and older to be eligible to receive frozen meals, and all clients must complete an annual registration form. The Senior Dining Frozen Meal Expansion Project started in August 2020 and additional pop-up locations are continually being added. Visit ccstcloud.org/events to see where frozen meal pop-up locations are currently scheduled through August.
