The week of March 21 – 25 marked Meals on Wheels of America’s “March for Meals Community Champions Week,” a national campaign to raise awareness about senior needs, especially around hunger and isolation. As a member agency, Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services (MOWSOS) participated locally and invited community leaders to take part in meal delivery ride-a-longs around the county. 

 

Community leaders who participated included District V Supervisor Federal Glover; Antioch Mayor Pro-tem Lori Ogorchock; Clayton Mayor Howard Geller; Martinez Mayor Rob Schroder; Pleasant Hill Mayor Sue Noack; Oakley Mayor Kevin Romick; Orinda Mayor Victoria Smith; Walnut Creek Mayor Pro-tem Rich Carlston; Pleasant Hill Councilmember Tim Flaherty; Concord Councilmember Dan Helix; Walnut Creek Councilmember Bob Simmons; Bay Point All in One President Delano Johnson; Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff Lt. Paul O'Mary and Deputies Katie Rhoe and Matt Buckley;  Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County Executive Director Will McGarvey; Bay Point Municipal Advisory Council Member Debra Mason;  American Medical Response (AMR) Public Information Officer Alicia Moore and EMT’s Sarah Dotson and Jason Kalan; and Keller Williams Realtor Dayna Wilson.

 

“I was very pleased to represent Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services during their ‘March for Meals’ event this year and hope to participate every March,” says Pleasant Hill Mayor Sue Noack.   

 

If you or your civic or community group is available to help, please contact Director of Community Engagement Carol Louisell at clouisell@mowsos.org or 925-954-8736. An on-line application, orientation, and background check are required.
