Area mayors are delivering meals during this week’s “March for Meals” as part of what has become a tradition in the Riverbend. The program is a product of the Meals on Wheels program, which is facilitated in this area by Senior Services Plus on North Rodgers Avenue in Alton.
The program, like all that receive funding from the state, has been hit hard by the budget impasse in Springfield. Senior Services Plus Executive Director Jonathan Becker tells The Big Z Meals on Wheels could serve more people of the funding was there.

Senior Services Plus has unofficially designated March through June of each year to raise awareness and community support to sustain the over 125,000 meals they deliver each year in St. Clair and Madison counties.
