PRINCETON, NJ, March 22, 2007 – Area mayors spent yesterday’s
lunch hour delivering meals to clients of the American Red Cross of
Central New Jersey’s Home Delivered Meals Program. Five area mayors and
one deputy mayor joined hundreds of mayors throughout the country
participating in national Mayors for Meals Day. Mayors for Meals Day
aims to raise awareness about senior hunger and show support for the
senior nutrition programs that deliver meals daily to older adults and
those homebound and unable to prepare meals for themselves.
“We are grateful that our local mayors recognize the need for these
services in our community,” said Rose Berger, community services
director with the American Red Cross of Central New Jersey. “Mobility is
an issue with many of our Home Delivered Meals clients and they depend
on the daily meals and visits from caring volunteers.”
Participating mayors included Peter Cantu of Plainsboro; Shing-Fu Hsueh
of West Windsor; Phyllis Marchand of Princeton Township; Janice Mironov
of East Windsor; Mayor Mildred Trotman of Princeton Borough; and Deputy
Mayor Hal English of Hamilton Township.
The American Red Cross of Central New Jersey’s Home Delivered Meals
Program delivered 51,365 meals throughout the Mercer County area last
year with the help of 220 dedicated Red Cross volunteers. For additional
