Most people know that the Meals on Wheels nonprofit is an important source of hot, nutritious meals for elderly members of our community. But they also collect and distribute pet food to low income seniors who might otherwise share meals meant for them with their four-legged friends, who are often their only constant companions.
This weekend brings storytelling, theater, film and frigid waters. As always, Xpress highlights the best in low-cost events.

Meals On Wheels will hold its third annual Polar Bear Plunge fundraiser at the Asheville Racquet Club on Saturday, Jan. 22 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Despite forecasted temperatures in the low thirties, more than 20 volunteers will brave the icy waters of the club’s outdoor pool to help raise money to feed Buncombe County’s homebound seniors.
