Pickens County Meals on Wheels is hitting the fall running. The Sam Wyche Food Fight Bowl, sponsored by Save-a-Lot Food Stores, is scheduled for Friday night, Aug. 23, when the Pickens Blue Flame host the Easley Green Wave. The game dates back to October 1923, when Easley beat Pickens 7-6 at Pickens’ home field.
This year all four Pickens County high schools will compete for the Ultimate Food Fight Bowl Trophy. The trophy goes to the school that collects the most money for Pickens County Meals on Wheels. This is the first year that all four county high schools will join hands to help PCMOW reach more shut-in residents by renovating the former Liberty Middle School kitchen and cafeteria.
This is a pivotal year for the future of PCMOW, which is renovating the former Liberty Middle School kitchen so meals can be prepared more effectively and services to other senior citizens can be extended.
