Committeewoman Pat Snell recently visited the Senior Center to promote the local Meals on Wheels program. Her visit was 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. Interfaith Neighbors, a local nonprofit, runs and operates this program out of the Senior Center and provides lunches for those in need on a daily basis. If you are interested in volunteering, please call Mary at Middletown Nutrition at 732-291-0999.

We thank the staff and volunteers at the Senior Center and Interfaith Neighbors for their dedication to our wonderful seniors!
