March for Meals Campaign Celebrates Meals On Wheels

Union County Freeholder Sergio Granados joined Bessie Stone, a nutrition aide with the Union County Nutrition Program, as she delivered lunch to senior citizens at Farley Towers in Elizabeth as part of Meals On Wheels. March is National Nutrition Month and marks the 12th annual March for Meals campaign celebrating Meals On Wheels.  The non-profit agency delivers up to 1,500 meals a day to homebound seniors and congregate dining sites in Union County. The program is primarily supported by a grant from the Union County Division on Aging, as well as donations from private sources and public organizations. If you would like to know more about the organization or are interested in volunteering or making a donation call 908-486–5100.  (Photo by Jim Lowney/County of Union)
