Why we March for Meals!
With March officially here, that means Feed More will once again be participating in the 17th annual March for Meals campaign! Organized by Meals on Wheels America, March for Meals is a nationwide celebration of Meal on Wheels and the positive impact it has on our senior neighbors.
By volunteering, donating or speaking out, you can help ensure the seniors in your neighborhood who rely on this program continue to remain healthy and independent in their own homes, where they want to be.
Throughout the month of March, we hope you’ll join us to help raise awareness for this amazing program and the people it serves. The 2019 Feed More Community Champions Week sponsored by Food Lion will be celebrated between Monday, March 18 and Friday, March 22. During this time, Feed More will invite local, state and federal officials, local celebrities and other prominent community figures to deliver our homemade, nutritious meals to homebound neighbors across our community, speak out for seniors and raise awareness for the power of their work.
Our Meals on Wheels program has been a part of the Richmond community since 1967, and now serves more than 900 homebound seniors each weekday. Our Community Kitchen creates cooked-from-scratch menus each month catering to 14 diet types that help keep all of our recipients happy and healthy. Not to mention, they taste great too!
