March for Meals
MOW MFM logo RGB RGB OnlineThe month of March mobilizes hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build the support that will enable them to serve America's seniors all year long. The March for Meals campaign is led by Meals on Wheels America and gives the businesses, organizations, governments and volunteers who contribute so generously in their communities an opportunity to support homebound seniors in a variety of ways to make America stronger and healthier.

This March, Friendship Centers of Emmet County (FCEC), Council on Aging, will join communities from across the country as we celebrate our seniors and the need for Meals on Wheels!
