Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada has been awarded $2,420,329 in Clark County Community Development Block Grant funds to grow the Hands of Hope Community Food Pantry and Meals on Wheels programs.
 
The Meals on Wheels kitchen will be consolidated into the St. Vincent Lied Dining Room kitchen and add 3,778 square feet of kitchen space to the facility.
 
Approximately 2,000 low-income, homebound seniors are currently receiving home-delivered Meals on Wheels. The added kitchen space will allow Catholic Charities to serve upwards of 2,600 clients. The food pantry expansion will give Catholic Charities the space and resources to serve 1,000 individuals every week, a 33 percent increase over current levels.
