TOGETHER, WE MARCH FOR MEALS

This time, last year, we were getting ready to celebrate with many of you at the 2020 Let’s Do Lunch event, not certain what the future had in store for our community. Like many organizations, we had to cancel our 2020 luncheon because of COVID-19, and will not be holding a luncheon this year. 

Although we can't all be in a room together, we can still celebrate those supporting the older and disabled neighbors receiving more than a meal! 

How? 

It's easy- Just $25 feeds a neighbor for one week! And it's more than the meals, it a friendly visit and a safety check too. Reducing isolation for those we serve is always important and even more so during these times.

You, your family, your group, or business can sponsor a day of meals to help deliver nourishment, independence, and care to the community. For $2,000 we'll sticker meals going out that day to let everyone know that you helped to make it possible. It's not just in March- it can be any day of the year! Just reach out to Jose Lerma for more information via email or call 210-735-5115 x1021. 


Meals on Wheels organizations across the country are celebrating throughout the month of March! We are all “tooting our own horns” so to speak.  Why, you ask?  Well, first and foremost, programs like Meals on Wheels San Antonio have touched millions of lives, by delivering more than just nutritious meals to seniors at risk of hunger and isolation, in virtually every community across the country. We have brought smiles and friendly safety checks with every knock on the door.  What an amazing feat!  And it is all because of the support of people like you. 

Wondering how you can participate? 
We love serving seniors in our community and we are lucky to get to have fun at the same time! We want you to have fun too! We’ll have volunteer appreciation events all month long, which means the more you volunteer, the more fun you’ll get to have! Or do any of the following during the month of March to help bring awareness to our mission of nourishing lives, enabling independence, and caring for San Antonio’s Seniors.
