The annual March for Meals celebration commemorates the historic day in March of 1972 when President Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 to include a national nutrition program for older adults.


Since then, older adults who are at risk of hunger and isolation have received nutritious meals and social connection through programs like Meals on Wheels.
