Texas receives federal grant for senior citizen meals

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The federal government has sent Texas $16 million to provide meals for seniors.

It's part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the relief bill President Trump signed last week.

It sent $250 million specifically for nearly two and a half million older Americans. Gov. Abbott calls it especially timely, given how COVID-19 targets them.

It will go toward organizations like Meals on Wheels.
