Meals On Wheels Association of America Announces Grants to Restore Meals to Homebound Seniors

The Meals On Wheels Association of America has announced a $500,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation in support of MOW programs across the country.

Half of the grant will be used to develop the Emergent Meal Grant Program, which will enable forty-one struggling MOW programs to restore or maintain meal services they had eliminated or were expecting to cut in the near future due to a lack of funding. More than a dozen recipients of Emergent Meal grants are located in top ten "senior hunger" states.

"The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has stepped up to the plate to help MOWAA fight senior hunger," said the Meals On Wheels Association of America president and CEO Enid Borden. "Their contribution will help us ensure that thousands of seniors will get the nutritious meals and human contact they need to survive."
