Fairfield County Bank has donated $5,000 to Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield.

The donation will be used to help fund the supplies needed by the organization to fulfill its mission of providing nourishing meals to low-to-moderate income residents in the local community.

“Meals on Wheels continues to provide exceptional care to our community by delivering meals to our neighbors. They have done so for the last 47 years, playing a vital role in making our community so special,” said Chief Executive Officer David Schneider.

Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield has been providing meals for those needing assistance due to age, disability or illness since 1972. Last year, 140 volunteers prepared and delivered over 24,000 meals to the residents of Ridgefield. With no federal or state funding, Meals on Wheels relies on donations of community members.
