Meals On Wheels: So No Senior Goes Hungry

Did you know that there are over 5,000 local Senior Nutrition Programs in the US?  These programs help feed the elderly over one million meals each day with the help of the Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA).  Through grants and donations, MOWAA is able to provide food to the elderly at senior group centers and also in their own homes.  MOWAA has pledged to end senior hunger by 2020 -- to eliminate the hunger of the nearly 6 million seniors who don't have meals everyday.  Click here to watch the video and take the pledge to end senior hunger.

As the holiday season approaches, snow and rainstorms become more severe.  Weather can become unsafe for family members trying to visit their senior relatives and for the Meals On Wheels drivers delivering warm meals to their clients.  Take care to bundle up and drive safely this winter.
