2019 March for Meals events

The month of March is an important month for the Terre Haute Area Meals on Wheels program. It is not only a national fundraising month, but we are also celebrating our volunteers, local leaders, and the fact that we have moved our offices into a new building!

For the last 17 years, the Meals on Wheels network has claimed the month of March as its time to join forces to strengthen the impact of its efforts and rally communities around what you all do. During March for Meals, you’ve collectively raised millions of dollars in support of your local programs and recruited tens of thousands of volunteers, champions and lifetime supporters.

Here's how we're celebrating:
