SAN ANTONIO — Meals on Wheels San Antonio is a nonprofit that addresses food insecurity and malnutrition, combats social isolation, and improves health of seniors in the community. Donating just $25 feeds a neighbor for one week. But it's more than the meals, it’s a friendly visit and a safety check too.
This month, Meals on Wheels’ programs across the country are celebrating the annual March for Meals commemoration of the historic day on March 22, 1972, when President Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 to include a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older.

Meals on Wheels is in urgent need of volunteers to deliver meals to homebound adults and seniors. Over 4,000 individuals receive 6 meals each week throughout Bexar County and Central South Texas.

There are many ways to celebrate Meals on Wheels’ March for Meals.
