March for Meals

Raising Awareness

to help fight senior isolation and hunger

The month of March mobilized hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build the support that will enable them to serve America’s seniors all year long. 
 
Meals on Wheels of Johnson & Ellis Counties has been  participating in March for Meals since its inception 17 years ago. Our 2019 campaign successfully gave the businesses, organizations, governments and volunteers who contribute so generously in their communities an opportunity to support homebound seniors in a variety of ways to make our communities stronger and healthier.
 
“With your support and advocacy, we are making huge steps toward ending hunger and isolation among our elderly population," says MOWJEC Community Relations Director Lisa Deese.
 
Thanks to the generosity of community members, local businesses and corporate support, March for Meals raised more than $50,000. But more importantly, it brought awareness to our program and the needs we meet for our senior neighbors.
