Columbus mayor Jim Wetherington to deliver meals

Columbus mayor Jim Wetherington will be delivering meals to seniors on Wednesday morning as part of a Mayors for Meals Day event.

He'll start a seven-house route at 11 a.m.

Mayors for Meals is a national campaign initiated by the Meals On Wheels Association of America which seeks to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on part of the local community.

"We are excited about having Mayor Wetherington participate in the event," said Mickey Tucker, director of the Lower Chattahoochee Direct Service Corporation.
