We have had some exciting local media coverage this week! USU Extension-Salt Lake has teamed up with SLCO-Aging Services to help provide fresh fruits and vegetables to home-bound seniors through a new program called MealsPlus. This program supplements the already nutritious meals provided to seniors thorough the Meals on Wheels program.

Many community partners are what make this program a big success. From USU Extension’s commitment to maintaining a garden at Wheeler Historic Farm, to local commercial growers donating produce to volunteers helping package shares this is truly a community effort!
