Campaign Highlights Importance of Meals on Wheels Program

LACONIA — Mayors for Meals, is part of a March for Meals campaign, initiated by the Meals on Wheels Association of America to raise awareness about senior hunger. It enables mayors and local leaders to observe first-hand the positive impact this program has on homebound participants. This year Laconia City Councilors Armand Bolduc and Robert Hamel helped prepare 130 meals for delivery to homebound citizens. Councilor Bolduc then helped deliver some of the meals throughout the surrounding area.

In Belknap and Merrimack counties, the Meals on Wheels Program and the ten area Senior Centers are sponsored by the Community Action program of Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc. They have joined together in a national effort to celebrate and acknowledge the importance of these programs in fighting senior hunger. The Meals on Wheels program provides five hot, nutritious meals a week to participants and the community dining program provides the same to Senior Center participants. In 2013, BM-CAP served approximately 246,827 home delivered meals as well as important safety checks to an at risk population.
The Laconia Senior Center and the BM-CAP organization would like to express their gratitude to all the local leaders for participating in Mayors for Meals and joined in the fight to end senior hunger.
