Entire Month of March – March for Meals is celebrated across the nation to recognize 5,000 programs who serve 2.7 million seniors daily nutrition!
Sponsored by Meals on Wheels America, March for Meals is held in March of each year to recognize the month legislation was passed to include nutrition services in the Older Americans Act. Business and community leaders are encouraged to participate by delivering meals with volunteers to clients.
Many of our volunteers celebrated March for Meals at our Open House, held March 16, 2016. We are truly grateful for the support of over 250 volunteer drivers and more than 100 additional volunteers who work in the office and events. Thank you!
