Meals on Wheels of Greenville has received $2,700 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation. The funds will support the organization’s daily meal program for homebound individuals in Greenville County — specifically the purchase, production and distribution of meals.
“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 of Meals on Wheels of Greenville, said in a news release. “This gift helps us ensure our clients receive healthy menu items along with their daily volunteer visit they rely on.”
Established in 2001, the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $12 million in grants, the release said.
