MEALS ON WHEELS AMERICA NEWS

MORE THAN 2,000 MEALS ON WHEELS CHAMPIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO MARCH FOR MEALS THIS WEEK

Mar 17, 2014
The Meals On Wheels Association of America kicks off Community Champions Week today as part of the 12th Annual March for Meals. Over the past month, nearly 350 Meals on Wheels programs across the country have recruited more than 2,000 Members of Congress, mayors, governors, local celebrities and community leaders as champions to help raise awareness for senior hunger. As part of Community Champions Week, the Meals On Wheels Association of America has also released all-new State-by-State Senior Hunger Fact Sheets. The Association designed these fact sheets to be comprehensive resources that capture the number of hungry seniors in each state, the number of meals and seniors served, and to showcase that investing in these programs saves taxpayer dollars.
