March For Meals 2014 Letter.pdf
Since 1972, Riverside Meals on Wheels has delivered hot, nutritious meals to seniors and disabled housebound residents in Riverside, CA. As a local 501(c)3 nonprofit volunteer organization, we depend on private donations to support the meal program. Our mission is to provide nutritional assistance to help people remain independent in their own homes as long as possible. Riverside Meals on Wheels provides not only a home-delivered meal, but regular contact with a friendly, caring driver. Our program is unique in that we offer special dietary options, including diabetic and vegetarian meals, and free pet food for their treasured companions, through a partnership with the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center.
During the month of March, Riverside Meals on Wheels will participate in the nationwide “March For Meals” campaign to increase awareness of the problem of senior hunger, recruit new volunteers, and raise funds to support local meal programs. A highlight of the month-long campaign is “Mayors For Meals” Day. On this designated day, elected officials in Riverside will join mayors and other dignitaries throughout the country in delivering meals to seniors in their districts to demonstrate support for local Meals On Wheels programs.
