The Roanoke food nonprofit received the funds from the Carl C. Anderson Sr. & Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation. 

For a limited time only, every dollar that goes toward Metroport Meals on Wheels will now provide twice as many meals. Earlier this month, the Carl C. Anderson Sr. & Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation gifted a $20,000 challenge grant to the Roanoke nonprofit. Every donation that goes to Metroport Meals on Wheels will now be doubled up until the $20,000 threshold is met.

“We recognize how difficult and challenging this time is for everyone, especially for organizations serving those who are most in need,” the foundation says in a media release. “The foundation board of trustees and staff have profound gratitude and admiration for all you do to meet the needs of the vulnerable populations you serve, especially in these unprecedented times.”

In addition to the donation challenge, Metroport Meals on Wheels is also accepting purchased items from its wish list, as well as volunteers to help with meal preparation and distribution. To donate towards the challenge or volunteer, call 817.491.8534 or visit
