Make Mother's Day Delicious for a Homebound Senior Mom

For the third year in a row, the Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) is celebrating Mother's Day with the Meals for Moms campaign, an effort to make sure no senior women go hungry on Mother's Day—or any time of year. According to MOWAA, 60 percent of seniors facing hunger are women, and that gender gap is growing each year.
