Satchel’s Pizza Awards Satch Cares Grant to ElderCare of Alachua County

Satchel’s Pizza continues to make a positive impact on the local community by selecting ElderCare of Alachua County as one of the recipients of the Satch Cares Q2 2023 Grant. This grant donation will support ElderCare of Alachua County’s Meals on Wheels program, which provides nutritional meals and education to older adults in Alachua County.

ElderCare of Alachua County has provided home-delivered and congregate meals to older adults facing food insecurity for over 30 years. These adults often have to choose between paying for food or other necessities, such as utilities, prescriptions, or housing. Since 2018, ElderCare of Alachua County has provided 353,936 home-delivered and congregate meals, helping to alleviate hunger in the community.

ElderCare will use the award to cover program expenses related to meals, supplies, delivery, and other associated costs. The award will also help reduce the current waiting list, which currently stands at 1,291 seniors. Satchel’s Pizza is committed to helping the community thrive and believes that a healthy and happy community is the key to its success. As such, the restaurant donates to diverse local non-profit organizations that best know how to serve the community.

The Satch Giving program offers donations in various forms: gift cards, Satch Grant, Satch Cash, and Satch Capital. All applicants must be a non-profit entity (501c3) that provide charitable, environmental or educational services to the people of Alachua.

ElderCare of Alachua County is proud to partner with Satchel’s Pizza and is excited to witness the positive impact that the grant will have both on the organization and the population it serves.
