2011 Walmart Foundation-MOWAA Building the Future Impact Grant Winners

The Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) has awarded grants to 96 Member programs as part of a previously-announced $5 million donation from the Walmart Foundation. The Walmart Foundation-MOWAA Building the Future Impact Grant Program will pay for more than $1.4 million in upgrades to replace aging kitchen equipment, delivery vehicles and computer systems at Meals On Wheels programs in 32 states and the District of Columbia. This financial support is desperately needed as many Meals On Wheels programs struggle during the nation’s economic downturn and face high gasoline and food prices.
Impact Grants of up to $20,000 are designed to help Meals On Wheels programs expand services now and into the future. Selected MOWAA Member programs will use the grants to make operational improvements that will ensure their sustainability and foster long-term growth, so that the unacceptable high hunger rate among seniors can be reduced now and in the future.
