RHS senior creates roving bake sale to benefit Meals on Wheels
Joe Fazio, a senior and National Honor Society student at Ridgefield High School, has created a roving bake sale he calls “Bake Sale on Wheels” to benefit Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield.
As a kid riding his bike around town, and now that he drives, Joe said, he knows the importance of transportation for getting to places in Ridgefield, as activities can be spread out. Joe created the idea to have his friends and family help him bake goods, put them in his SUV along with some folding tables and then go to the local fields during the month of October to sell the baked goods at youth football and soccer games, with all proceeds going to Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield.
When he approached Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield, the organization loved the idea. Joe said, “As football season begins and it starts to get cold outside, it makes me think how important it is for our elderly and homebound neighbors right here in our town to have a hot, nourishing meal. I want to do something about that.”
