Government Officials, Local Celebrities Give Back in “Champions for Meals”

Each year, for “Champions for Meals” week, local celebrities will deliver meals throughout WNY in support of the work that Meals on Wheels for WNY does.  We will have alumni from the Buffalo Sabres as well as government officials – including the Mayor of Buffalo, Erie County legislators, Buffalo Common Council members, and town and village officials. This year, we will have more than 30 participants – breaking a record!
