March For Meals 2011 Campaign

Texoma mayors are kicking off the March For Meals 2011 Campaign.

All this week, city officials are raising funds for the fight against senior hunger.

City officials will ride along with volunteer meals on delivery drives. to gain understanding of the program.

The "ride along" also provides insight to participants regarding the issues of senior hunger, and how the local area answers those needs.

"The elderly, the backbone of our community wouldn't be able to be fed and that's a horrible thing to think." said volunteer coordinator, Kelly Patton.

A major aspect of the 2011 March For Meals Campaign is for Americans to team up with their local Meals On Wheels Program, and take the pledge to end senior hunger in America by 2020.

Currently, 1 in 9 seniors is at risk of hunger in the United States.
