Crop Science Research and Development recommended Lubbock Meals on Wheels to receive a $5,000 grant from Bayer Fund. Funds from the grant will be used to begin meal delivery in Wolfforth, TX.

“We have received calls from people needing meal delivery service in Wolfforth for several years. These funds will cover the start-up costs associated with beginning a meal delivery program in Wolfforth,” said Mary Gerlach, Assistant Director at Lubbock Meals on Wheels. “Lubbock Meals on Wheel is not government funded. All support and donations remain local and serve the Lubbock and Wolfforth communities.”

“Advancing Life – That’s what we at Bayer are all about. Lubbock Meals on Wheels performs an amazing service for the Lubbock Community by serving over 800 meals per day. Both Bayer and Lubbock Meals on Wheels share a common goal of improving lives which made Lubbock Meals on Wheels a great choice for the Bayer Fun,.” said Luke Carpenter, Site Lead, Lubbock Research and Development. “We at Bayer appreciate all that Lubbock Meals on Wheels and their volunteers do to bless our community.”

In 2019, Bayer Fund awarded more than $1.4 million through this program to nonprofit organizations in rural communities to help address essential needs in Food & Nutrition, STEM Education, and Community Development. Nonprofit organizations across the U.S. have received more than $7 million through this program over the last five years.
