The 2017 Community Champions Week will be celebrated between Monday, March 20 and Friday, March 24. During this time, we encourage programs to invite local, state and federal officials, local celebrities and other prominent community figures to deliver meals, speak out for seniors and raise awareness for the power of Meals on Wheels.
This special week within March for Meals provides a wonderful opportunity to engage powerful figures in your community, garner media attention and helps raise public awareness for the nutritional and social needs of seniors. In 2016, more than 2,900 Community Champions delivered meals and/or spoke up for their local Meals on Wheels programs.
- Delivering or serving meals
- Hosting a fundraising event
- Declaring March a month to honor Meals on Wheels through a public proclamation
- Speaking out on social media
If your Community Champions cannot participate Monday, March 20 through Friday, March 24, we absolutely encourage you to schedule them for another day in March that does work for their schedules.
