Moultonboro/Sandwich Senior Meals Receives $2500 Grant from Meredith Village Savings Bank

MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) is pleased to announce that the charitable fund carrying its name has awarded a $2,500 grant to Moultonboro/Sandwich Senior Meals. These funds are being used by the program to send participating seniors home with a healthy, home-cooked meal for supper.

For more than seven years, the Moultonboro/Sandwich Senior Meals Program has been serving the senior community of Carroll County. The program's staff and volunteers prepare, cook and serve lunch at the Moultonborough Lions Club, Monday through Thursday. Volunteer drivers also allow the program to serve homebound seniors by providing meals delivered directly to residences.

It became clear in recent years, that some of the seniors that visit the Lion's Club for lunch each day could also benefit from being able to take a healthy meal home for supper, but due to state guidelines for reimbursement they could not provide this service. Thanks to this added support from MVSB, the program was able to provide 830 take-home meals to Carroll County seniors this year.

Moultonboro/Sandwich Senior Meals Program is a satellite of Ossipee Concerned Citizens Corp., a nonprofit organization. The program's mission is to serve the senior community a nourishing meal, a smiling face and the ability to stay out of institutions. For more information,  contact the Moultonboro/Sandwich Senior Meals Program at 603-476-5110.

MVSB established the Meredith Village Savings Bank Fund in 1997 under the leadership of John Starrett who was then president and CEO of the Bank. Since then, 235 grants totaling more than $872,000 have been awarded to a wide range of environmental, social, educational, and historic projects throughout the Lakes Region and Plymouth area. Over the years, the Fund has supported literacy programs, after-school programs, environmental monitoring and education, restoration of historic structures, organizations that provide support for individuals and families in challenging circumstances, and equipment that helps save lives.
