MARCH 31ST IS NATIONAL DONATE TO MEALS ON WHEELS DAY!
Trump’s proposed budget has cuts coming to community services left and right. One of the most pressing is the funding that will have an almost certain detriment to the Meals on Wheels program. This essential service provides food to over 2.4 million Americans every single day. The non-profit delivery service ensures many elderly and disabled people have adequate nutrition and is often the difference between eating and starving.
While the program isn’t under direct threat of being shut down, they already lack funding and are having trouble keeping up with the demand. Our baby boomer population isn’t going to stop aging and we need to make sure they stay as healthy as possible. One thing we CAN do is keep their food coming! We at #SUN want to ensure there’s enough funding no matter what.
A DONATION DRIVE LIKE NO OTHER!
Since the election, people are stepping up all over North America to ensure funding for Planned Parenthood, The ACLU, and the NAACP. We need to add Meals on Wheels to our regular donation list too. Feeding those who can’t provide for themselves should be a top priority!

Let’s make MARCH 31ST the national support Meals on Wheels day! Set a reminder on your calendar and make even a small donation to keep the food program up and running!
