Bob’s Backyard BBQ Pickerington Providing Free Senior Meals

The Senior Hub-Meals on Wheels Fairfield County has announced the addition of a second restaurant program to serve older adults living in Fairfield County. The program launched April 10, 2024 and offers the opportunity to receive a daily meal at Bob’s Backyard BBQ located at 80 West Church Street in Pickerington between the hours of 11:00 am and 2:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Seniors 60 and older must register with The Senior Hub-Meals on Wheels of Fairfield County to enjoy these great meals.

Bob’s Backyard BBQ in Pickerington now offers a daily seniors menu, approved by a registered dietitian and prepared by the restaurant.

The new Pickerington location will bring the total number of community meal sites to ten.
