On March 22, 1972, President Richard Nixon signed into law a measure that amended the Older Americans Act of 1965 and established a national nutrition program for seniors 60 years and older.

Meals on Wheels America established the March for Meals campaign in March 2002 to recognize the historic month and the importance of the Older Americans Act Nutrition Programs, and to raise awareness about the escalating problem of senior hunger in America.

Larry Winegar, Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee, will be in attendance to accept the Proclamation.
