Western Pa Officials to Participate in Mayors For Meals Day

City of Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and State Senator Jim Brewster are among 26 mayors and other elected officials slated to join Lutheran Service Society in celebrating Mayors For Mealls Day on March 23.

Mayors For Meals Day is a national event, created by Meals On Wheels Association of America to promote volunteerism and to generate awareness of senior hunger in local communities. As the region's largest provider of Meals On Wheels, Lutheran Service Society has hosted this event on a large scale in western Pennsylvania for the past three years.

"We participate in this event each year because it educates community leaders about the Meals On Wheels programs in their areas," said Leslie Montgomery, Lutheran Service Society's director of volunteer services. "The event was designed to raise awareness of senior hunger in local communities and across the country, and will hopefully encourage people to volunteer at their local Meals On Wheels location."

This year, the following mayors and officials are scheduled to participate in Mayors For Meals Day, by delivering meals to their constituents from one of Lutheran Service Society's 39 Meals On Wheels program locations, or by helping to prepare meals for delivery to the homebound elderly.
