SUMMIT, NJ - Berkeley Heights Township elected and law officials, organizations and residents joined SAGE Eldercare as it participated in the 16th annual March for Meals – a month-long, nationwide celebration of Meals on Wheels -- a service that ensures the homebound and vulnerable seniors are not forgotten 

Berkeley Heights participants included Mayor Robert Woodruff, Police Chief John DiPasquale, and Councilwoman Jeanne Kingsley, Rescue Squad Member Marc Schnitzer and Rotary Club members.

Established in 1966, SAGE’s 'Meals on Wheels' is the oldest continuously-run, home delivery meal program in New Jersey. In 2017, approximately 600 volunteers delivered more than 43,000 meals to 214 people in Union County (Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, New Providence, Springfield, and Summit), Essex County (Millburn and Short Hills), and Morris County (Chatham and Madison).

“The services that we provide older adults in our area are critical; it’s not just a warm meal, but also a friendly visit, sometimes the only human contact a person gets the whole day,” said Marianne Kranz, SAGE Director of Meals on Wheels and Home Support Services. “Together, we can keep seniors living independently, healthier at home and feeling more connected to their community as they age.”

For more information, or if you know someone who could benefit from the service, contact Kranz at mkranz@sageeldercare.org. or call 908-273-5554.
