March for Meals 2014 in progress

Dunkirk-Fredonia Meal on Wheels announces its “March for Meals” 2014 campaign.

March is an important month for Meals on Wheels. It’s a time to raise awareness of hunger throughout our communities and within our senior population.

Meals on Wheels is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide not only a nutritious meal with a friendly smile, but also a safety check for homebound seniors.

Throughout the month of March the organization is asking for support.

By 2050 the number of hungry seniors is expected to double – reaching the combined population of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston.

Meals on Wheels across the country is reaching 2.5 million hungry and isolated seniors but 6.3 million are still in need.

Reach out to end hunger for the local community’s seniors. Make a difference by donating time as a volunteer or making a monetary donation.
