High School Leadership Board (HSLB)

The Meals On Wheels of Tampa High School Leadership Board (HSLB) connects high school students with Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s mission and the community, through a variety of activities including volunteering, fundraising and program development.

The HSLB is a service-learning and leadership development program where members of the Board will contribute to programming, while acting as ambassadors and leaders in their communities.

Since 2015, the HSLB has created new programs and events including Water On Wheels and the Meals On Wheels of Tampa 5K.

Projects

The High School Leadership Board (HSLB) developed and introduced Water on Wheels (WOW!) on May 21 2016, to encourage healthy hydration.

In order to continue impacting the health impact of WOW! on our recipients, 2016-2017 HSLB President, Maggie Fitzsimmons, took this project a step further, by applying and receiving the Lightning Community Heroes of Tomorrow award!

Today, an 8oz bottle of water is delivered with every hot meal.  Learn more about WOW! here.

On February 3rd, 2018, the HSLB hosted the inaugural Meals On Wheels of Tampa 5K, Fun Run & Music Fest along the Tampa Riverwalk to raise funds for additional hurricane supplies for Tampa’s homebound.  In 2019, the event moved to Gadsden Park and raised funds to start a brand new home exercise program for over 800 recipients.

Applications are accepted March-April each year and a new board is selected in May.  To find out more about MOWTampa’s High School Leadership Board, please call (813) 238-8410 or email S.TaylorPage@MOWTampa.org.
