March for Meals Champions
During the entire month of March, Berks Encore and its community partners celebrate March for Meals by recognizing the extraordinary work of the hundreds of volunteers who make this program possible for our homebound neighbors. Each of the six Berks Encore Centers selects a Meals on Wheels Champion to be recognized during a special celebration during Meals on Wheels Champions Week, TBD for 2021.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19, this year’s event was cancelled for Wednesday March 18, 2020 at the Berks Encore Reading Center, 40 N. 9th St., Reading.
During March for Meals we encourage new volunteers to participate in the Meals On Wheels program, a vital community service that provides meals to more than 600 homebound seniors in Berks County each weekday. To find out how you can help, please contact Rita Phillips, Director of Volunteers or call (610) 374-3195, x225.
