WE STAND FOR
LAKE COUNTY SENIORS
On Monday, March 1, 2021, the Council on Aging will kick off a month-long celebration for our Annual March for Meals. This Lake County event is one of hundreds of local programs across the country that reaches out to their communities to build the support for Meals on Wheels.
The annual March for Meals commemorates the historic day in March 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 and established a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older. Since 2002, Meals On Wheels programs from across the country have joined forces for the annual awareness campaign to celebrate this successful public-private partnership and garner the support needed to fill the gap between the seniors served and those still in need.
Through this program, hundreds of seniors in Lake County who live alone and are in need of food receive nutritional meals delivered right to their homes.
