Mayors participating are Jim Dobbie of Atherton, Rich Cline of Menlo Park, Ted Driscoll of Portola Valley, and Ron Romines of Woodside. Don Horsley, San Mateo County supervisor for District 3, will also participate.
"This is the fifth year our mayors have been involved with the national Mayors For Meals Day," said Bart Charlow, executive director of Peninsula Volunteers.
