City of Madison firefighters respond to a different kind of need today when they participate in the annual March for Meals in cooperation with Meals on Wheels.
March For Meals is an annual campaign designed to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action at the local level. Senior Nutrition Programs across the United States promote March For Meals in their communities through public events, partnerships with local businesses, volunteer recruitment efforts and fundraising initiatives.
Members of the crew at Firehouse #5, 4418 Cottage Grove Road, agreed to take time over the lunch hour to deliver several meals to neighbors in their territory.
Meals on Wheels staff will be at the station this morning at 11:00 to give firefighters their assignments and the hot meals that provide nutrition for older adults.Contacts:
