MORE: Mayors for Meals is a national event hosted by Meals on Wheels to highlight the issue of senior hunger in local communities. For one day, Mayors and community leaders across the country show their support by donating one hour to deliver meals to homebound seniors in their community. Last year, more than 1,300 U.S. and Canadian mayors and other community leaders participated.
Every day in this country, there are 7.5 million homebound seniors facing the threat of hunger. In San Antonio, every year the local Meals on Wheels program delivers over 890,000 meals to the doorstep of many frail and disabled seniors, but the program needs more help from community partners to keep with demand. By participating, community leaders will help bring much-needed visibility to the vital services the program provides, as well as generate awareness for more corporate partnerships here in San Antonio. Coverage of this event will help the program towards their ultimate goal of ending senior hunger.
