MARCH EVENTS AT MEALS ON WHEELS

March is an exciting month here at Meals on Wheels for Western New York. Our March events include:

#March for Meals: March 1 – 31

March for Meals remembers the important day in history, March 22, 1972, when President Nixon signed into law a measure that would establish a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older. These programs across the nation were commonly referred to as Meals on Wheels. The purpose of the annual campaign is to spread awareness of Meals on Wheels to ensure that our seniors are not forgotten.
