CELEBRATE THE 2022 MARCH FOR MEALS WITH US!
IN PERSON OR VIRTUAL 5K, FAMILY WALK, AND FAMILY CARNIVAL
Imagine not being able to walk to the corner market for food.
Imagine not being able to safely prepare a hot meal in your kitchen.
Imagine never leaving your home for fear of falling.
Imagine being all alone.
We walk to help those seniors who can’t.
Support Meals on Wheels of Placer County by registering for the walk or donating today.
Even a small donation will help keep seniors safe and nourished.
On March 22, 1972, President Richard Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 and established a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older. For nearly 50 years, these critical programs – commonly referred to as Meals on Wheels – have delivered more than just nutritious meals to homebound seniors in virtually every community across the country. And, the dedicated staff and volunteers who deliver these meals each week provide a vital lifeline and connection to the community, which are sometimes all it takes to keep our senior neighbors at home, where they want to be.
Meals on Wheels programs have come together each March since 2002 to celebrate this proven collaboration of local community organizations, businesses, all levels of government and compassionate individuals to ensure that our seniors are not forgotten. By volunteering, donating or speaking out, you can ensure the seniors in your neighborhood can live more healthy, happy and independent lives at home, where they want to be
