CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) FOX 24 NEWS NOW- George Roberts, President & CEO, East Cooper Meals on Wheels took time today to chat with us about Meals on Wheels new initiative, “Fruitful Summer”.

According to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, very few Americans, just one in ten, eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables every day. East Cooper Meals on Wheels is working to address the barriers to fresh fruit and vegetables among the homebound population with its campaign. Donations will go toward providing servings of fresh, seasonal fruit for meal recipients. In honor of the 100 days of summer, gifts of $100 and more will be doubled by Lerato LLC. A $100 donation will help East Cooper Meals on Wheels deliver 30 healthy meals with fresh fruit to a homebound neighbor.
