March for Meals
To raise awareness and funds, Independent Living, Inc. is participating with Meals on Wheels Association of America in its annual March for Meals campaign. MOWAA represents about 5,000 senior nutrition programs around the country. Locally, Independent Living offers the only Evening Meals on Wheels program in Dane County. In collaboration with several local noon programs, Independent Living has organized community awareness through proclamations and meal deliveries made by special guests. Events include appearances by the UW Marching Band, and special interviews with WKOW TV and "All About Living" radio program with Carol Koby.To learn more, read the article in the "In the News" section on this web site.
