Fort Worth, TX — March 26, 2015 — Officials representing many of the forty cities served by Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County will join with county and state officials to celebrate March for Meals, a national initiative to raise awareness about the impact senior nutrition programs make on the communities they serve.
The luncheon chaired by Commissioner and Mrs. Andy Nguyen will take place at the Fort Worth Club on Thursday, March 26, 2015, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and will feature an address on the impact and future of the organization that has delivered over 18 million meals to Tarrant County residents over the past 42 years. The volunteer force of over 5,000 dedicated, caring individuals make this possible by donating their time, vehicle, gasoline, and energy to staff 46 meal distribution sites throughout Tarrant County, managing 215 delivery routes with nearly 3,700 meals delivered daily.
ABOUT MARCH FOR MEALS
Senior nutrition programs across the United States, including Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County, promote March for Meals through special events, partnerships with community members, and educational experiences. Through awareness campaigns such as the Champions Luncheon, we hope to meet the need now and in the future for our homebound neighbors who depend on us. No one expects to ask for help with something as basic as nutrition, but through an unexpected illness, an accident, or simply the blessing of many birthdays, it has happened for thousands in Tarrant County.
