Meals on Wheels essay wins grant


In the first phase of a holiday competition, an essay from Peninsula Volunteers Meals on Wheels has won $100 from the Meals on Wheels Association/Subaru grant program.

The essay describes how Meals of Wheels drivers provide more than meals to recipients.

The next phase of the competition, which relies on getting the most Facebook users to "like" the story, could earn the program up to an additional $500.

The grant money will be used to help fund meals and purchase birthday gifts for recipients.

Each year Peninsula Volunteers delivers more than 240 hot meals a day, five days a week, to seniors and the homebound, according to Marilyn Baker-Venturini, director of Meals on Wheels.
