Senior Nutrition receives grant for Meals on Wheels

Press release

ABCAP Senior Nutrition announced it has received a $2,000 grant from Meals on Wheels America for its participation in the 13th annual March for Meals campaign. This year’s grants were made possible through Subaru of America, Inc. and its seventh annual “Share the Love” event. During the event, Subaru donated $250 to the owner’s choice of participating charities for every new vehicle purchased or leased.

“We are thankful for all the overwhelming community support during our March for Meals campaign,” said Denise Neu of ABCAP Senior Nutrition. “Local businesses and leaders were vital to the success of our March for Meals campaign.”

Throughout the month of March, ABCAP Senior Nutrition Program’s March for Meals events included a Community Champions Week from March 16 to March 20 and a Motorcycle Ride and Dessert Auction on March 21. ABCAP Senior Nutrition was fortunate to have so many leaders in Adams and Brown counties participate in the Community Champions Week and make it very successful. Community Champions included Ohio Senator Joe Uecker, Adams County Commissioner Stephen Caraway, Brown County Commissioner Barry Woodruff, Georgetown Mayor Dale Cahall, ABCAP Board Members Becky Cropper and Dianne Kinnett, Pastor Bill Godby of Bible Chapel, UCC and Community Impact Associate of United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Alyssa Spoor. The Community Champions showed their support by helping pack and deliver home delivered meals to the seniors of Adams and Brown counties.

In total, $370,250 is being granted to 258 local Meals on Wheels programs and two Meals on Wheels America-affiliated State Associations based on their March for Meals efforts.

“The March for Meals grant program is our way of recognizing local programs for bolstering the dynamic and effective partnership between Meals on Wheels and the businesses, organizations, governments and volunteers who provide critical support within their communities,” said Meals on Wheels America President and CEO Ellie Hollander. “In addition to mobilizing nearly 400 local Meals on Wheels celebrations across the country, we commemorated the month by releasing the findings of a groundbreaking research study proving that Meals on Wheels delivers so much more than just a meal.”

The annual March for Meals campaign is an effort led by Meals on Wheels America to present opportunities for volunteers, businesses and governments to support seniors in a variety of ways that make communities stronger, safer and healthier. For more information, visit marchformeals.com.

ABCAP Senior Nutrition provides an essential service of a Comprehensive Nutrition Program by not only delivering hot ready-to-eat meals to our community homebound seniors, but also conducting daily wellness and safety checks as well as annual nutritional assessments. This vital community service allows seniors to live independently in their home. Meals are prepared locally and delivered Monday through Friday. This is a vital service to our homebound seniors as it provides a powerful socialization opportunity for seniors to help combat loneliness and isolation. By providing hot, ready-to-eat nutritious meals to seniors in our community, we are able to help them avoid premature or unnecessary institutionalization. ABCAP Senior Nutrition continues to lead the advocacy effort for independent living and senior nutrition in Adams and Brown counties.

Meals on Wheels America is the oldest and largest national organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network exists in virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million staff and volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity. By providing funding, leadership, education, research and advocacy support, Meals on Wheels America empowers its local member programs to strengthen their communities, one senior at a time.
