Meals programs going strong
Agency has raised over $30,000 for March program
JOLIET — The Senior Services Center of Will County participated in this year’s March for Meals, which is an annual campaign sponsored by the Meals on Wheels Association of America to stimulate public awareness of the Meals on Wheels program, recruit new volunteers, increase financial support and ensure that no senior goes hungry. The agency has raised over $30,000 for the March for Meals campaign so far.
This year, March for Meals celebrates the 40th anniversary of the inclusion of Senior Nutrition Programs in the Older Americans Act (OAA). In March of 1972, President Richard Nixon signed into law a new Title of the Act that laid the groundwork for more than 5,000 senior nutrition programs. The OAA is the primary piece of federal legislation that authorizes and supports vital nutrition services, both congregate and Meals on Wheels, to Americans age 60 and older.
