TOGETHER, WE MARCH FOR MEALS
On March 22, 1972, President Richard Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 and established a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older. For nearly 45 years, these critical programs – commonly referred to as Meals on Wheels – have delivered more than just nutritious meals to homebound seniors in virtually every community across the country. And, the dedicated staff and volunteers who deliver these meals each week provide a vital lifeline and connection to the community, which are sometimes all it takes to keep our senior neighbors at home, where they want to be.
Meals on Wheels programs have come together each March since 2002 to celebrate this proven collaboration of local community organizations, businesses, all levels of government and compassionate individuals to ensure that our seniors are not forgotten. Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is a proud member of Meals on Wheels of America. www.marchformeals.com for more information
During the week of March 20-24, 2017, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia will be hosting March for Meals recognition events at many of its senior nutrition centers. Watch our events calendar for more information to come.
