Meals on Wheels Program Gets Financial Boost

The Meals on Wheels program in Nevada County ins now receiving more funding.. Executive Director of gold Country Community Services Jake Jacobson says last Friday the Area 4 Agency on Aging Governing board accepted a change in designation for the local program, leading to the additional funds.

“Well, they considered us to be a rural agency rather that an urban agency in terms of our home delivered meal programs and our congregate meal programs. What that means for us is rather than a $5.00 per meal reimbursement from state and federal sources, we’ll now get $5.75 per meal which brings us another $20,000 in revenue to help us support our program each year.”

Meals on Wheels delivers an average 150 meals a day in Western Nevada County.
