March for Meals - Mayors for Meals

This year we celebrate the 13th Annual March for Meals campaign, which is an annual month-long event, sponsored by MEALS on WHEELS AMERICA (formerly Meals On Wheels Association of America). It is designed to generate public awareness about senior hunger and isolation and to celebrate the invaluable services provided by the more than 5,000 Meals on Wheels programs across the country. Given the exemplary public-private partnership Meals on Wheels America embodies, this annual campaign is also intended to help recruit new volunteers from our community and to increase fundraising from local businesses and supporters. For more information, visit www.marchformeals.com.

Today, CMI once again participated in MAYORS for MEALS DAY, where mayors or elected official from the seven towns we serve are invited to accompany a volunteer and deliver meals to "their" clients, in the hope of gaining much-needed visibility for Community Meals and the national agenda. We wish to thank Mayor Paul Aronsohn - Ridgewood, Mayor John vanKeuren - Glen Rock, Mayor Patrick "Bud" O'Hagan - Midland Park and Mayor Thomas Giordano - Waldwick for participating. Additional thanks to Gloria Geannette, Editor of the Ridgewood News for arranging a photographer and reporter from the Ridgewood News and a photojournalist from The Record to capture the moment and help publicize our organization and purpose.

If you have a Facebook account, please look for postings of current events and volunteer photos , and of course "LIKE" us at: https://www.facebook.com/CommunityMeals
And last but certainly not least, we thank our volunteers and supporters - because without you we would not be Community Meals.
Sincerely,
The Board of Directors of Community Meals, Inc.
