By staff writers

March 24, 2021 -- The Delta Dental Community Care Foundation has awarded a $500,000 grant to Meals on Wheels San Francisco to improve the oral health of the most vulnerable seniors in the area.

The partnership launched on World Oral Health Day, a global campaign held on March 20 that aims to reduce the burden of oral diseases. Meals on Wheels already provides special diets for seniors with chewing or swallowing challenges, making it a natural partner to work on oral health issues for vulnerable older adults, Delta Dental said.
