Sacramento, CA (MPG) - Meals on Wheels by ACC along with thousands of others are making our voices heard by participating in the national “SaveLunch” campaign. Help us send a message to Congress and other elected officials to stop budget cuts and save senior nutrition programs across the country.

Meals on Wheels by ACC provides much needed meals to nearly 1,500 homebound seniors, many of whom depend on our program as their main source of nutrition and socialization. Another 900 seniors gather to enjoy nutritious meals and the companionship of friends at one of our 20 All Seasons Café’s throughout Sacramento.

Meals on Wheels by ACC is more than just a meal, for many the daily or weekly visits from our volunteer drivers may be their only connection to the outside world, their only smile, their only friend.  

Each Meals on Wheels by ACC participant has been provided a paper plate in which to write a message to their local congressperson, we invite you to join us in this effort. On September 15th we will be sending hundreds of paper plate messages to our elected officials, we would like yours to be one of them, and together we can “SaveLunch”.

Please send your paper plate to:

Meals on Wheels by ACC, 7375 Park City Dr, Sacramento, CA 95831
