Mid-East AAA Receives Grant To Extend Meal Program

MEAAA has been awarded $120,000 from the Jefferson Memorial Foundation for providing hot meals on wheels for Jefferson County. The costs of providing hot meals on wheels have steadily increased over the years. MEAAA’s funding for meals has not kept pace with the increased cost and three areas of Jefferson County have been receiving frozen meals delivered once per week instead of a daily hot meal. Mary Schaefer estimates the grant will provide hot meals for one year if all expenses remained the same. MEAAA is developing a plan to sustain the hot meals beyond one year using the grant funds.
