The funds will be used to support Meals on Wheels’ daily meal delivery service to homebound people in Greenville County. The purchase, production, and distribution of food is made possible by donors such as Food Lion.
“Foundations that support good quality and nutritious food, such as what we provide to our homebound neighbors, are essential in helping us fulfill our mission,” Catriona Carlisle, executive director at Meals on Wheels of Greenville, said. “This gift helps us ensure our clients receive healthy menu items along with their daily volunteer visit they rely on.”
The Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation was established in 2001 and financially supports programs and organizations that feed the local hungry. In total, the foundations has received more than $12 million in grants.
Meals on Wheels of Greenville provides more than a hot, nutritious meal. Volunteers bring personal interaction and independence to the homebound and hungry.
