Epicurean event benefits Meals On Wheels

Support Local Journalism


Join Friends of Meals On Wheels for the annual fundraising event, the Epicurean Esprit, as it marks its 29th year to benefit Meals On Wheels Yolo County. This popular charity evening will be held on Thursday, May 10, from 6-8:30 p.m. at The Maples, a classic country estate venue in Woodland. 

The ‘Esprit’ is a special gathering of the local community as they mingle and sample some of Yolo County’s finest cuisine, wine and beverages donated by over 50 local restaurants, wineries and breweries.  Supporting Meals On Wheels, the Epicurean Esprit raises money to help insure continued meal delivery to almost 350 elderly people throughout Yolo County.

Unlike many senior meal programs in neighboring counties that distribute frozen meals a few times a month, the Elderly Nutrition Program operates a full restaurant style kitchen to prepare fresh cooked meals daily.

This year’s Epicurean Esprit is dedicated to the memory of Tari Vinson who passed away in October 2017.

Tickets for the event are $50 per person. They are available at National Town & Valley Properties in Woodland, The Gifted Penguin and Strelitzia Flower Company in Davis. Tickets can also be ordered through: https://esprit2018.eventbrite.com. Call Kathy Aukes, 530-304-4682 for more information.
