Restaurant donates weekly to Meals on Wheels

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gracie's Restaurant is stepping up to the plate in the fight against hunger in Blount County.

The restaurant is donating food to the Blount County Community Action Agency's Meals on Wheels program.

Gracie's has committed to prepare food for 100 of the agency's Meals on Wheels clients every Tuesday for the next six weeks. The restaurant provides and prepares the food while BCCAA staff members go to the restaurant and package it for delivery.

Gracie's owner Ken Gentry became inspired to extend a helping hand after reading Bread of Heaven owner Michael Colquitt's efforts to feed the homeless and hungry last Christmas.
