Let's #SaveLunch... together!

Lady with Save Lunch Text

Each March, Meals on Wheels celebrates the historic day in 1972 when President Nixon amended the Older Americans Act and added a national nutrition program for seniors. This legislation supported the rapid growth of the Meals on Wheels network, which now collectively serves 2.8 million seniors each year.

This year's March for Meals celebration comes when eight out of ten local Meals on Wheels programs deliver meals to more older adults than before the pandemic, and operational and food costs are soaring even while inflation slows. 

During this year's March for Meals celebration, Meals on Wheels is focusing on one hashtag: #SaveLunch

This hashtag unites our effort to continue providing meals to our community while facing budget cuts at the federal level. This month, Meals on Wheels San Antonio will partner with local groups, elected officials, and nationwide businesses. We have plenty of opportunities to get involved this month and can't wait for you to join us!
