March for Meals 2022 event! March 18-25
From March 18-25, Meals on Wheels of Boulder is joining organizations across the nation in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Older Americans Act (OAA) Nutrition Program amendment with an event called March for Meals.
Meals on Wheels of Boulder, through this event, is also honoring the everyday champions in our community that support the mission of the nonprofit – to provide nutritious meals and a daily well-being check to Boulder residents, regardless of age or income.
During the week of March 18-25, several fun activities are planned:
- Community Champions Week – a series of scheduled public figures from our community will ride along with an assigned volunteer driver and a photographer/videographer to appreciate firsthand meal deliveries to our Boulder neighbors. Each day will start at 10:30 a.m. at the Meals on Wheels of Boulder building at 3701 Canfield Street, Boulder, CO.
March 18 – Mayor Aaron Brockett
March 21 – John Tayer, President & CEO of Boulder Chamber of Commerce
March 23 – Carol Riggs, past owner of Sturtz & Copeland
March 24 – County Commissioners Claire Levy and Marta Loachamin
- Text to March – a text-to-donate campaign to raise $10,000 in honor of the occasion. You can march by texting MARCHFORMEALS to 44-321. Any amount is appreciated.
- Stories Showcase – a webpage filled with testimonial stories, photos, and videos to honor the everyday champions who make Meals on Wheels of Boulder’s mission come to life.
- Mini-Concerts – a webpage filled with videos of music from some of your favorite, local musicians.
