Wednesday: Mayors to deliver meals to elderly


The mayors of Atherton, Menlo Park, Portola Valley and Woodside will spend part of Wednesday, March 23, delivering meals to homebound residents of their communities, according to the Menlo Park-based Peninsula Volunteers Inc., which runs local facilities and programs for seniors, including Meals on Wheels.

Mayors participating are Jim Dobbie of Atherton, Rich Cline of Menlo Park, Ted Driscoll of Portola Valley, and Ron Romines of Woodside. Don Horsley, San Mateo County supervisor for District 3, will also participate.

"This is the fifth year our mayors have been involved with the national Mayors For Meals Day," said Bart Charlow, executive director of Peninsula Volunteers.

The national campaign, called March For Meals, aims to raise awareness of hunger among the elderly and to encourage action by local communities.
