SeniorCare Inc. is proud to announce that it has received a $500.00 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 the generosity of 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 honored to be chosen to receive this grant; it will help us further our mission of ensuring access to healthy meals for all older adults in the nine cities and towns we serve,” said Linnea Hagberg, R.D. Nutrition Program Director for SeniorCare.

Throughout the month of March, Meals on Wheels Worked with community champions to deliver meals on wheels in all nine cities and towns we serve. Community Champions included Selectman Tom Kehoe, Selectman Erin Battistelli, Gloucester Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, State Representatives Jerald Parisella and Brad Hill, State Senators Joan Lovely and Bruce Tarr.

Furthermore, SeniorCare partnered with the Gloucester House Restaurant to hold a meals on Wheels Fundraising Breakfast on March 27, 2015.

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.

Meals on Wheels is able to provide a week day delivery of nutritious meals for people who are age 60 or older and are unable to prepare a balanced meal because of physical, mental, or emotional limitations; do not have sufficient assistance from family, friends, or neighbors to prepare a balanced meal; or are unable to comfortably or safely participate in the Congregate Dining Program.

There are no income eligibility requirements. A $2.00 per meal donation is requested. Those who are not homebound may enjoy dingin with others at one of our local community sites.
