The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has donated $10,000 to the Meals on Wheels Foundation of WNY to aid in the purchase of a new industrial mixer.
Fundraising for the mixer is ongoing, and this is a substantial amount of the total needed for the project. Once adequate funds are raised, Meals on Wheels will acquire a 140 quart Hobart industrial mixer.
This large mixer will enable Meals on Wheels for WNY to make food in full batches versus preparing two batches and having to mix them, increasing consistency and quality. The larger mixer also will help the organization accommodate future growth as the need for meal service continues to grow.
Meals on Wheels for WNY prepares between 5,000 and 6,000 fresh meals each weekday for distribution throughout Erie County.
