UW Band dishes out meals on wheels

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The UW marching band took their show on the road Tuesday to deliver meals to those in need.

Band members went to a pair of senior living facilities and a few houses in Madison Tuesday afternoon to play mini concerts as part of the Meals on Wheels "March for Meals" campaign.

It runs all month long, to raise awareness of senior hunger in the Madison area.

Michelle Christenson, the Evening Meals on Wheels manager says, "Also besides raising awareness, we do fundraising so that we are able to have additional funds in order to feed elderly or homebound citizens that need our services."

Nationwide, more than 5,000 Meals on Wheels programs reach nearly 2.5 million senior citizens in need.
