Council on Aging receives Meals on Wheels grant


The Council on Aging of Central Oregon announced Friday that the MDU Resources Foundation and Cascade Natural Gas have awarded a $4,000 grant to the Council on Aging to expand Meals on Wheels programming in the tri-county area.

“This is the second time we’ve awarded a grant to the Council on Aging of Central Oregon for their Meals on Wheels service,” said Cascade Natural Gas District Manager Marcus McCloskey. “We recognize the importance of the work the council does day after day to care for and support older adults in the communities in which we and they operate.”

McCloskey personally presented the check to the Council on Aging Executive Director Susan Rotella.

“Meals on Wheels deliveries play a key role in our nutritional programming and in the ability of older adults who are challenged with mobility issues to live at home,” said Rotella. “This grant enables us to further fund not only the meals but to provide critical social support and wellness checks that promote safety and well-being of our older adult neighbors. Our clients and our team so appreciate this continuing and necessary community support.”

Central Oregon adults over sixty and contending with interim and long-term mobility challenges are eligible for Meals on Wheels service at no cost. To find out more, contact the Council on Aging of Central Oregon at (541) 678-5483 or
