Dare County video highlights senior meals program

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.

Among the participants in the local 2021 March for Meals program were Dare County Board of Commissioners Vice Chairman Wally Overman and  commissioners Rob Ross and Ervin Bateman.

Watch the “March for Meals 2021” video here or below:

For more information about Dare County’s Senior Nutrition Program or to sign up to volunteer time delivering meals to homebound seniors within the Outer Banks community any time of year, visit www.DareNC.com/SeniorMeals.
