Mayors Nationwide Deliver Hot Meals For Seniors

Imagine the mayor of your town, knocking on your door, to deliver you a hot meal.  Well, that's what happened to hundreds of East Texans Wednesday as mayors from all over our area participated in Mayors For Meals, a program put on by Meals On Wheels.  In Tyler, Mayor Joey Seeber showed his support by packing up and delivering hot meals to dozens of East Texas senior citizens in need.

"It's a great cause, they served over a million meals a year, for the people in our communities that need them, this is the largest meals on wheels in the state of Texas. I want to do all I can to support meals on wheels and help feed people," says Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber.

Mayors for Meals is a nationwide effort to help raise awareness, recruit new volunteers, and increase local fundraising for Meals on Wheels.
