SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Meals on Wheels is celebrating its 14-th annual "March for Meals" awareness campaign.

More than twenty mayors, elected officials and notable San Diegans are delivering good will to seniors across the county this week.

Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc. provides a vital safety net for vulnerable seniors.

"The services that we provide the seniors of San Diego County are critical and the need is rapidly increasing," said Debbie Case, President & C.E.O of Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc.

Some of the organization's upcoming events include:

* March 26, 2016 - Wiggin' Out for San Diego Seniors: This 3rd annual event is perfect for anyone interested in a 5K or 1M Run/Walk that will help combat senior hunger. Join us in beautiful Crown Point Park on Mission Bay at 7:30AM Registration - La Cima Dr. & Crown Point Dr. in Pacific Beach, 92109.
