A project of LAKE COUNTY COUNCIL ON AGING
Lake County Council on Aging will hold its 8th annual March for Meals event on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at the Great Lakes Mall in Mentor.
All funds raised by the March for Meals event will stay in Lake County to support the Council's meal services through the nutrition program.
Each weekday, staff and volunteers at the six nutrition sites prepare, serve and deliver about 730 meals through both the agency's Meals on Wheels and senior cafe' lunch programs. The lunches represent one-third of the recommended daily adult dietary allowance. The March for Meals event helps to ensure that all seniors who need meals are able to receive them.
This year's March for Meals event will pay special tribute to all veterans of the United States. Honorary chairman is United States veteran and Painesville resident, Joe Bradac who served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War.
