Support Meals on Wheels

The month of March mobilizes hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build the support that will enable them to serve America’s seniors all year long. The 18th annual March for Meals campaign gives the businesses, organizations, governments and volunteers who contribute so generously in their communities an opportunity to support homebound seniors in a variety of ways to make America stronger and healthier.

Friendship Centers of Emmet County is raising awareness and funds for senior hunger and needs your support during March with Meals on Wheels America’s March for Meals Campaign. FCEC currently serves an average of 140 homebound seniors in Emmet County with a hot, nutritional meal five days a week, as well as frozen meals for weekends and holidays.
