VPAS highlights Meals on Wheels program

valley program for aging servicesValley Program for Aging Services will participate in the 15th annual March for Meals Community Champions Week.  Local community leaders have been recruited to deliver Meals on Wheels, speak out for seniors and raise awareness for the power of Meals on Wheels.

Senior hunger and isolation is a real and growing need in our community.  This past year 47,115 meals were delivered to 364 older adults living in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County.  VPAS is delighted that our local community leaders are willing to participate in the Community Champions day by delivering meals and bringing attention to this issue.

Since 2002, Meals on Wheels America has led the March for Meals in an effort to fill the gap between the seniors served and those in need that is widening due to increased demand with a rapidly aging population combined with declining public and private resources, and rising food, transportation and operational costs.
