Mayors for Meals 2011

Our first year participating in Mayors on Meals was a great success! We started the day at our offices, packing meals with the help of some new volunteers, city officials and community leaders. With the help of Serve Philadelphia volunteers from around the Philadelphia area were able to connect with us for new volunteer opportunities.

Following our morning kick-off event we joined other Meals on Wheels partners through Klein and Stiffel Jewish

Community Center, the City of Philadelphia, AARP volunteers at South Philadelphia High School. Students in the culinary program cooked healthy meals for clients and recieved additional help with packing from Philadelphia Eagle Tight End, Cornelius Ingram and Philadelphia Mayor, Michael Nutter.

Mayors on Meals is just one day out of March on Meals that we are able to bring awareness to the issues of senior hunger in our community with help from dynamic community leaders.
