Mayor George Pradel made a special delivery to the homes of local senior citizens.
The mayor prepared and dropped off warm meals to the home-bound residents as part of the “Mayors for Meals” program.
“I was surprised and he had such a nice smile and really was such a friendly person,” said Helen March, a recipient of the program.
“It’s really a joy to see Meals on Wheels actually happening,” said Mayor Pradel. “I think every mayor should do that.”
The “Meals on Wheels Association of America” created the program to raise awareness of senior hunger and encourage cities to take action. Hunger threatens more than 11% of people over the age of 60.
Mayor Pradel joined more than 20 other civic leaders from DuPage County in the initiative.
