Rosie’s will start offering the meals on April 1st and will begin taking orders for pick-up on March 30th.

“The order will be ready the following day, so you got to give us that 24 hour window… so we’re taking orders the day before.”

The Rosie’s Gives Back program is about showing the community support for all the good the community does.

“The Rosie’s Gives Back program even reaches beyond what we are doing right now. Last year I contributed from the Vinton property about $100,000 dollars to local charities. That touches the County of Roanoke the City or Roanoke, the Town of Vinton and beyond.”
