To the editor:
The Dalles Meals on Wheels has been serving meals in The Dalles since the 1970s with its sole mission to stop senior hunger. Last year alone we served a combined total of 45,000 meals to our home-bound and on-site participants.
One in seven senior citizens go hungry in our country. The National March for Meals events that took place around the country help to bring awareness to this ever-growing problem.
The Dalles Meals on Wheels would like to thank the Wasco County Commissioners and The Dalles City Councilors who attended, Marvin Pohl, Area Agency on Aging director; the third grade classes at Colonel Wright school and their great teacher Ramona Harwood; and all of our wonderful volunteers for making our first March for Meals event such a success.
