During the month of March all across the country and here in Fairfield County, communities will come together to take a stand to make sure the 9.3 million seniors nationwide struggling with isolation and hunger will NOT be FORGOTTEN. Locally, Meals on Wheels of Fairfield County reaches over 2,000 older adults annually with nutrition or other supportive services to improve their well-being, their overall health, and their independence.
