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 seniors all year long. Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels has planned a month full of March for Meals events. We’ll be honoring our wonderful supporters, enjoying ride-along deliveries from our Community Champions, increasing awareness of the needs in our community, recruiting new volunteers, & more. And if you receive home delivery, be sure to look for our March for Meals delivery magnets on your volunteers’ cars!
