Hundreds of mayors and locally elected officials across the country helped deliver meals with their local Meals on Wheels Programs to homebound seniors in their communities on March 21. The event was part of the Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) campaign to bring awareness to and end senior hunger by 2020. The Upper Cumberland Human Resource Agency (UCHRA) Home Delivered Meals Program asked area mayors and elected officials to get involved.“We asked our city mayors, county mayors and state elected officials to help us deliver meals and see how the program not only brings a nutritious meal to our seniors and our homebound residents but also brightens their day,” shared Ruth Ann Woolbright, UCHRA executive director.
