MIDDLETOWN – Deputy Mayor Kevin Settembrino recently lent a helping hand at the local Meals on Wheels program at the Township’s Senior Center. His visit is part of an annual March for Meals awareness campaign organized by the Meals on Wheels Association of America. The goal of the campaign is to generate awareness about the growing number of seniors facing the threat of hunger in America and to encourage action on the part of the local community.
