March is National Meals on Wheels Awareness Month
FEAST is celebrating with a March for Meals!
March is National Meals on Wheels Awareness Month! FEAST is busy raising Awareness about our programming to ensure that we are serving all older adults who need access to healthy, delicious meals.
This month, MSAC is focused on raising more funds to support Montpelier's essential FEAST Senior Meals Program through our MARCH FOR MEALS campaign. At FEAST, our big goal right now is to raise greater local awareness of our programs so we are shifting their names a bit to clarify what we offer, which is: Meals on Wheels (formerly FEAST at Home) and Curbside Meal Pickup (formerly FEAST To Go).
We already serve 100 seniors each week, but we know that there have to be more older adults in Montpelier and the surrounding towns who would benefit from and enjoy FEAST's delicious meals. We are, therefore, asking you to help us spread the word: if you know of anyone over the age of 60 who is homebound, living on a fixed income, and needs access to nutritious, delicious food, have them call our office to sign up for our FEAST Meals on Wheels program. If you know anyone who would like regular access to delicious Curbside Meals for pickup, they are available at no charge to seniors over 60 (donations appreciated) and are just $7-$10 for anyone under 60. Call to register and we'll see you on Tuesdays and Fridays at our side door between 12-12:30 pm.
Thanks for helping raise awareness about our essential FEAST Senior Meals Program! Call us at 262-6288
