EngAGE Receives Grant from Bank of America
By: EngAGE, Inc
The EngAGE in Wellness program solves two significant problems facing older adults and low-income families: the packaging of food is too bulky to handle and the pick-up locations are sometimes unreachable. We have trucks pick up the food, then we parcel it into bi-monthly, carryable packages, and arrange delivery directly to participating residents in our apartment communities.
EngAGE also creates and, with the residents, maintains on-site vegetable gardens in many communities we serve. In addition, we provide free onsite wellness classes, teaching cooking and nutrition, exercise, yoga, falls prevention, health education, medication management, and other topics that empower residents to take on healthy behaviors that keep them in independent affordable housing and out of higher levels of care.
The demand for our wellness services increased significantly during the pandemic and remains very high. EngAGE is excited to put to work this Bank of America grant supporting greater access to food, a vital need in our communities.
