Meals on Wheels America

The month of March is when the Meals on Wheels network joins forces to celebrate March for Meals, recognizing the historic day in March of 1972 when President Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965 to include a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older. For more than 50 years, the OAA has been the foundational source of federal funding for senior nutrition programs across the country, which collectively delivers more than 247 million meals to 2.8 million seniors annually.


With appropriations season underway, March is the perfect time to write to your Members of Congress, highlighting the successes of the OAA and calling for further financial support from your elected officials.
