March for Meals 2017 with Community Leaders

The month of March mobilizes hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build the support that will enable them to serve America’s homebound all year long. The annual March for Meals campaign is led by Meals on Wheels America and gives the businesses, organizations, governments and volunteers who contribute so generously in their communities an opportunity to support homebound in a variety of ways to make each community stronger and healthier.

Each March, Meals on Wheels of Greater Lynchburg invites leaders in the business, government, education and other various community organizations to help deliver meals on one special day in order to meet some of the most engaging people our city has to offer: our meal recipients!  In this way, we gain new advocates for the service we provide, and new relationships are formed.

This year on March 21st in Lynchburg, business and community leaders will once again convene to deliver meals on our routes to those who cannot leave home. Stay tuned for more information about this fun event for our community.
