Knoxville volunteers take part in ‘March for Meals’

Bo Williams and Ken Weathers help deliver Mobile Meals.

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Meals on Wheels programs across the country are taking part in the 13th annual “March for Meals” this month, an initiative to recruit volunteers for the various local programs.

WATE 6 On Your Side anchor Bo Williams and meteorologist Ken Weathers volunteers with Mobile Meals in Knoxville Thursday to help deliver meals to those in need.

Mobile Meals delivers about 475 meals to homebound seniors each Monday through Friday.

About 60 percent of the seniors in the program are over age 75 and nearly 70 percent are women.

If you’d like to volunteer, Mobile Meals is always looking for help.
