March for Meals just might be the easiest way to give back that we've heard of.

There's no entry fee, no pledges to gather... all you have to do is show up and Food Services of America will donate $5 to Ada County's Meals on Wheels Program.

They're hoping to host the largest such event in the country at Kleiner Park on Saturday, March 25. The goal is to get at least 1,000 people there.

The walk is only a third of a mile long.

"We're up 100 meals a day from this time last year," says Grant Jones, Metro Meals on Wheels director. "We think it's going to only continue to increase because seniors are living longer and a lot of retirees are moving here."

Registration begins at 9:30 in the morning with the march starting at 10 a.m.
