Grants help teams deliver food, companionship
The Oklahoma City Community Foundation Trustees recently awarded $28,075 in grants to 60 Mobile Meals providers, including 14 United Methodist churches in Oklahoma County, to help offset the cost of food and transportation.
“Mobile Meals is a vital service for homebound individuals in our community,” said Nancy Anthony, president of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. “In addition to providing warm meals, the personal contact by caring volunteers is also very important to many of those served through the program.”
Grants were awarded to these UM churches that provide Mobile Meals in Oklahoma County: Chapel Hill, Choctaw, Church of the Servant, Cornerstone, Crown Heights, Douglas Boulevard, Jones, Grace, Linwood, Putnam City, Southern Hills, St. Luke’s, Village, and Wesley.
A total of 58 faith groups are part of Mobile Meals of Oklahoma County.
