Mayors for Meals Day March 23

By
February 14, 2011 |

The Elderly Nutrition Program in Yolo County announced today that it will host Mayors for Meals Day as a part of its March For Meals campaign.

Mayors and City Council members from throughout Yolo County will be participating in the event to show support for the community’s hungry seniors by delivering meals to homebound seniors and working in the kitchens and dining rooms of the congregate meal program on March 23 and on other dates throughout March.

“We are excited about having our mayors and council members participate in our Mayors for Meals Day event,” Nicki McCabe, executive director, said in a news release. “Our elected officials have been involved with our program in the past and the national Mayors for Meals Day is an excellent way to continue our relationship.

“We thank these local leaders for stepping up to the plate and joining our mission to end senior hunger in Yolo County by the year 2020,” McCabe said.

March for Meals is a national campaign during the month of March, initiated by the Meals On Wheels Association of America, which seeks to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on the part of the local community.

“Meals On Wheels programs are on the front lines of our battle and need support from elected leaders to continue providing the nutritious meals and human contact that our seniors so desperately depend on,” Enid Borden, president and CEO of the Meals on Wheels Association of America, said in the news release.

Senior nutrition programs across the United States, like the Elderly Nutrition Program in Yolo County, promote March for Meals in their communities through public events, partnerships with local businesses, volunteer recruitment and fundraising initiatives. Mayors for Meals Day is a component of March For Meals that utilizes the involvement of area mayors and other local elected officials.

The Elderly Nutrition Program’s March For Meals campaign will feature “Deal for Meals,” poker and bunko tournaments, co-hosted by the Centennial Rotary Club in West Sacramento and ENP. The fundraiser will take place at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 26, at Our Lady of Grace School in West Sacramento. All Yolo County residents are welcome to join in the fun to help raise needed funds for a worthy cause.

The Elderly Nutrition Program in Yolo County, established 36 years ago and widely known as Meals on Wheels, is a private, nonprofit, community benefit organization that provided more than 83,000 meals to 1100 seniors in Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, Woodland, Knights Landing, Esparto, Madison and Yolo last year. The organization serves meals and friendship Monday through Friday to frail, homebound elders and to seniors at senior centers. For more information, visit http://www.elderlynutrition.org.
