March for Meals
Save the Date!
Saturday, March 26, 2022


We expect to be marching in-person in 2022. Please plan to join us!



We shattered our 2021 Goal for the Annual March for Meals fundraiser. Raising $17,500+ (so far) against a goal of $15,000 is validation that the neighborhood, borough, and city are behind southwest Brooklyn's hungry older adults.


This year, we put a pandemic-twist on the walk-a-thon: we encouraged donors, supporters, and members alike to march privately at home or in a socially distant fashion to protect everyone's health. Our Health Promotion Specialist Mary Ann Coughlin even led a dozen older adults in a virtual walking group (which continues through May; see below). Others headed outdoors on their own to get their walking exercise now that the weather is warming up!


THANK YOU to all these agencies and individuals for participating and supporting the 2021 March for Meals fundraiser: you ensure that hundreds of hungry and lonely older adults are fed and safe throughout the year!
