Mayors deliver meals to homebound

Eight local mayors and officials will take part in "Mayors for Meals Day" on Wednesday, March 21, by delivering meals to homebound seniors as part of the Peninsula Volunteers' Meals on Wheels program.

The mayors include William Widmer of Atherton, Kirsten Keith of Menlo Park, Maryann Moise Derwin of Portola Valley and David Tanner of Woodside.

"Mayors for Meals Day" is part of the March for Meals national campaign to raise awareness of senior hunger and encourage community action.

Peninsula Volunteers Inc. delivers 150,000 meals locally to seniors every year, half of them through Meals on Wheels, a spokesperson said.
