The Central Oregon Council on Aging (COCOA) was selected to receive a 2015 March for Meals grant award in the amount of $2,500.
Meals on Wheels supports homebound seniors and prevents hunger. This grant will give the local program a financial boost.
This year’s March for Meals was the most successful yet, the news release states. COCOA chose a western Meals on Wheels roundup theme. Local rodeo royalty served as community champions and helped deliver meals.
Additional support was provided by the Bend Chamber of Commerce, Food 4 Less, John L. Scott Realty, Home Instead Senior Care and Umpqua Bank.
