Calvary Baptist Church Burlington – $2,000 (Seed grant)
A well recognized and successful program that addresses the heart of our aging community by demonstrating love and care to a growing population that feels alone. Guests share that coming to the Seniors Lunch at Calvary feels like home. This program supports poverty/food security as this lunch is the last lunch of the week and they provide take home meals to help isolated seniors through the weekend. The agency also obtains additional produce for seniors to take home. This grant will be used to purchase a much needed dual oven that will enable them to cook greater volumes for the growing number of seniors who attend.
