In recognition of September as Hunger Action Month, Meals at Home celebrated a $30,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation at a check presentation ceremony Sept. 18. The grant will help further Evanston-based Meals at Home’s mission of delivering nutritious meals and providing supportive services to the homebound, elderly, disabled and others temporarily unable to care for their nutritional needs.

The funds will be used to provide home delivered meals to low-income, homebound seniors and young adults with disabilities who are unable to prepare meals for themselves, leaving them at risk of hunger or malnutrition.

 “Meals at Home sends a huge thank you to the Walmart Foundation for this grant,” said Meals at Home Executive Director Debi Genthe. “It will help many in our community by providing access to the food they need to remain healthy whether they are on a general, diabetic or other medically prescribed diet.”
