Dare County, in partnership with Current TV, has released “March for Meals 2021,” a video that highlights local officials’ participation in Dare County’s senior meals program.

In partnership with the Albemarle Commission, Dare County provides older adults who are at least 60 years of age with a nutritionally balanced meal five days per week that is either served in a congregate group setting or delivered directly to their home.

Throughout the month of March, the national Meals on Wheels America organization called on elected officials to deliver meals to homebound clients in an effort to raise awareness about the issues of senior hunger and isolation in their own communities.
