Area Agency on Aging 3 Receives Grant

The Ohio Department of Aging announced it is awarding 11 grants totaling $440,000 to Ohio’s area agencies on aging to build or expand partnerships increasing access to nutritious food for low-income older Ohioans.

 

A $40,000 grant was awarded to Area Agency on Aging 3, which serves Hardin and Van Wert Counties.

 

The money will be used to help fund a project called Sharing the Harvest, which utilizes community supported agriculture to decrease food insecurity in the older, isolated population.
