Senior Meals Receive Federal Funds

The Department of Health and Human Services will award the state of Oregon $3.2 million in funding to help provide meals for older adults.  The funding is being allocated from The Families First Coronavirus Response Act that Congress passed, and the President signed, in early March.  Oregon Second District Congressman Greg Walden said fulfilling the nutritional needs of older adults is especially important as COVID-19 poses an increased risk to their health.
