Mayor Jackson participates in Mayor's March for Meals

Posted: Updated:

Mayor Edna Jackson participated in the Mayor's March for Meals Initiative Monday by delivering meals to homebound seniors in the community.

This is part of a national campaign initiated by the Meals on Wheels Association of America to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on the part of local communities.

Through the help of Mayor Jackson, Senior Citizens, INC. will be given a grant that will feed one person for an entire year.

"She is wonderful, and our clients are really looking forward to seeing her," said Senior Citizens, INC. President Patti Lyons. "My job is going to be making sure I can get her out of the house so that we can keep delivering meals, so they are all anxious to meet her and have their meal delivered by her."

Through its Meals on Wheels Program, Senior Citizens INC. prepares and delivers more than 3,500 home-delivered meals each week.
