Join the Movement in South Hampton Roads
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is celebrating March for Meals, a month-long celebration of local Meals on WheelsTM programs throughout the nation that shines the spotlight on the issues of senior isolation and food insecurity.
In South Hampton Roads as well as across Virginia, thousands of senior adults live alone, sometimes in or near poverty, and struggle to stay healthy. They rely on the vital safety net provided by local Meals on Wheels programs such as Senior Services and other organizations in the community who provide access to nutritious home-delivered meals and weekday congregate meals at area senior centers.
During the month of March, Senior Services will actively promote awareness of the issues and fundraise to support its Meals on Wheels and senior center nutrition programs.
Speak out for the seniors in South Hampton Roads' cities and rural communities.

Become a bean counter for a chance to win!
Throughout March, Senior Services will be in the community at various events giving attendees a chance to guess how many beans are in the bottle. For this contest, we've partnered with Chick-fil-A to provide all kinds of goodies to the person who guesses correctly or comes the closest.
Even if you don't see us out and about, you can still participate for your chance to win. Simply email your name and guess to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to put "Count the Beans" in the subject line.
The winner will be contacted and announced Monday, April 1 (no joke!), and the prize will be available for pick up at the Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia office in Norfolk, Virginia.
Take the Challenge!
This March, try Beans on Toast. Share your photos on Facebook and be sure to tag Senior Services, use the hashtag #sssevabeans, and help bring awareness to senior hunger. We'll create a gallery of the best posts. Why Beans on Toast, you ask? Beans on Toast is a great, inexpensive British dish. But for far too many seniors, a meal such as this is all they can afford to sustain them for the entire day. So Senior Services is using it this March for Meals in hopes to bring awareness.
