Our team of staff and board members joined other advocates from across the state to rally in support of securing adequate resources for our home care and other programs that enable older people to age independently at home!
Elder Advocates Rally at State House

March for Meals - Raising Awareness About Senior Hunger!

This national campaign is sponsored by Meals on Wheels America to raise awareness, recruit volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers and raise needed funds.

  • Support Meals on Wheels when you dine at Not Your Average Joe's in Acton every Tuesday in March! Just mention Minuteman Senior Services or present this certificate to your server and we will receive 15% of your total purchase. Lunch, Dinner and Take-Out Included

  • Senior Dining Centers are holding soup tastings and other special events to raise needed funds.

  • Community Champions, including state and local officials, raise awareness by taking the time to accompany a Meals on Wheels driver as they deliver a hot meal and a friendly hello to those who are homebound.

With appreciation to our campaign sponsors
