In March, we march.
During the month of March, Meals on Wheels America organizes March for Meals, a month-long campaign to raise awareness of senior hunger and the programs that exist to combat it.
Locally, this campaign gives nonprofits such as Placer County-based Seniors First an opportunity to promote its comprehensive senior nutrition program which includes MyMeals, a nutritious, hot meal delivery service designed to support homebound seniors, and Senior Cafes, neighborhood sites where seniors can go for a nutritious noontime meal and social interaction.
The community is invited to participate in the March for Meals campaign by volunteering as meal delivery drivers, friendly visitors or through one of the many other programs offered by Seniors First.
We are happy to recognize the local personalities and elected officials who are committing to using their visibility in the name of hunger during March for Meals' Community Champions Week March 20 - 24 by volunteering their time to serve and delivery meals to local clients:
Placer County Supervisor Jim Holmes
Rocklin City Manager Rick Horst
Roseville Mayor Susan Rohan
Placer County Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery
Sacramento River Cats Street Team and Dinger
Sacramento Kings Dancers
