The annual #MarchForMeals celebration commemorates the historic day in 1972 when President Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965 to include a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older.
OAA is the primary piece of federal legislation supporting the social and nutritional needs of seniors, caregivers and their families. OAA services, like home-delivered meals, aim to serve groups of older adults living in the community with the greatest social or economic need.
Get involved all month long with events and partnerships throughout Salem County. With your support we can ensure every senior in need gets a hot, nutritious meal each and every day.www.scmealsonwheels.org/donate.
