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. Since then, senior nutrition programs like ours have delivered more than just nutritious meals to our most vulnerable neighbors and loved ones.
For the last 14 years, Meals on Wheels America has led a national awareness campaign during the month of March to celebrate these vital programs, increase awareness in our communities and recruit the support needed to meet rising demand.
Meals on Wheels of Mercer County has chosen to partner with many restaurants throughout Mercer County to help raise the awareness concerning senior hunger.
The restaurants below will be donating a percentage of your food bill to Meals on Wheels of Mercer County when you dine with them on a specific day. No flyer necessary! Your meal and their donation not only helps cover the cost of meals for those seniors unable to contribute, but also helps us raise awareness about senior hunger right in your community!
Please join us as we bring attention to this on going issue in our community!
Please don't forget to thank your hosts for their participation!
