Meals on Wheels Grant

In July, Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services announced it received a $2,000 grant award from Meals on Wheels America for its participation in the 14th Annual March for Meals campaign. This past March marked the 2nd year Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services participated in the national Meals on Wheels awareness campaign, celebrating the collaboration of local organizations, businesses, government, and compassionate individuals that ensure our seniors are not forgotten. 

Throughout the month of March, community leaders rode alongside volunteer drivers to deliver hot meals and a friendly smile to frail homebound seniors throughout Contra Costa County.  Nearly $400,000 has been granted to 265 local Meals on Wheels programs and one Meals on Wheels America-affiliated State Association, based on their March for Meals efforts. Based in Walnut Creek, the agency serves older adults all across Contra Costa County.  More information can be found at www.mowsos.org.
