Each year, Meals on Wheels OC participates in the national March for Meals campaign to generate awareness of senior hunger and isolation. This year, we invited local elected officials to get hands-on experience serving Grab & Go meals to older adults through our partnerships with local senior and community centers.
10 elected officials distributed meals, learned more about the ongoing struggles faced by older adults, and spoke with seniors facing food insecurity, many experiencing significant challenges for the first time in their lives due to the pandemic.
Our thanks to the following individuals who took time to show their support:
Assemblyman Steven Choi, 68th CA Assembly District
Mayor Letitia Clark, Tustin
Mayor Peggy Huang, Yorba Linda
Mayor Steve Jones, Garden Grove
Senator Dave Min, 37th CA Senate District
Representative Katie Porter, 45th CA Congressional District
Mayor Tri Ta, Westminster
Representative Michelle Steel, 48th Congressional District
